  * Slightly more aggresive and extendable issue1763 test.

Another modification of the test, this time setting the locale to C and in one
place since there's no block scope on environment variables.

So I think I just worked a little something out.

1. The trickiness is not the test failing, but it failing to fail.
   That is, it incorrectly passes with my en_GB.UTF8 locale.

   I'm not entirely sure why having a UTF-8 locale causes the test
   to spuriously pass... and would be happier with a good story for it.
   How does the locale affect the printing of darcs changes output
   again? :-/

2. 'en.UTF8' actually does not exist on my machine; the reason it seemed 
   to make the test do the right thing by virtue of being a nonsense
   locale, causing some sort of default to C?  Note that LC_ALL
   isn't actually set in my environment, but LANG is (en_GB.UTF-8)
