Death by Localization

I read a Coding Horror post in March about testing localisation code for Turkey to make sure it's correct.  Apparently Turkey has one of the hardest languages to write Internationalisation code for.

Anyway, it appears that a localisation fault on a mobile phone in Turkey has resulted in two deaths and three jailings.  Warning - bad language in this link!

Wow.  That's a very bad side-effect...
