Summary0010697: Locale-dependent number format in .pvd files
DescriptionI have a .pvd file with entries like

<DataSet timestep="9.62917e-10" group="" part="0" name="" file="./s0001:fdtd-00001.pvtu"/>

If a german locale (LANG=de_DE.UTF-8) is in effect, paraview reads the
timestep as the integer "9" without any diagnostic. If I replace the decimal
seperator in the data file with the german ",", like this:

<DataSet timestep="9,62917e-10" group="" part="0" name="" file="./s0001:fdtd-00001.pvtu"/>

then paraview reads the timestep correctly. If I leave the decimal seperator
in the data file as ".", but start paraview with LC_ALL=C, the timestep is
also read correctly. An example dataset is attached.

Note that the Calculator filter suffers from a similiar problem; any number
containing a decimal point is accepted, but anything after the point is
silently ignored.
