>live: fix unsafe use of setlocale()

Ugh! - I thought we were done with these "live*" 
patches (except for "live-noapps")?

If there's really a problem with the existing 
code, then please instead submit a patch to the 
"LIVE555 Streaming Media" code itself (either to 
the "live-devel at lists.live555.com" mailiing list, 
or just to me), so I can include it in future 
releases - so that all applications (not just 
VLC) that use the code can benefit from it.

(However, from what I can tell, your new calls to 
"newlocale()" and "freelocale()" are not 
portable.  For example, although Mac OS X knows 
about them, FreeBSD does not.)
