Linux Fedora Core 15: /usr/lib/locale/locale-archive still large after removing all but one locale


After running bleachbit 0.8.7-1 on Linux Fedora Core 15 as root to remove all but 'en' locales (that removed 400 meg of files!), I see that /usr/lib/locale/locale-archive is still 100 meg, and the command 'locale -a' lists 100 or so locales. Trying to run the command build-locale-archive fails because locale-archive-tmpl has been truncated to an empty file. If I delete locale-archive* and then do yum reinstall glibc-common, I end up with many locales reinstalled and the locale-archive is 100 Meg. Suggestions?

Unexpected languages noted in usr/locale/langpack after using v.0.9.1


After cleaning with the latest version of BleachBit, is there any reason that I should be seeing languages in this directory, that I didn't opt to retain? For example, I am seeing bn, xh, fr and some strange variations of English (e.g., pig-latin, and so forth). Not even sure what two of these are ...

Is there something unusual about this directory, that these subdirectories can't/shouldn't be, removed? I only have a 4GB SSD, so I'd like to free the space, if at all possible and advisable.
