Yes - parsing issues with locales that use a decimal comma. I ran into this when I tried my first hand-coded parser and kept it around for the simplistic sscanf parsing.

When I implemented the utf8 based parser that's now committed, this was really easy to do. In my working tree I'm 2/3 towards map input and there the semicolon text has been removed, too.
