I had a look at the code.  It's from these two lines in locale.c:
	  /* 50: surely no system expands a char more. */
#define XFRMBUFSIZE  (2 * 50)

That '50' looks like a guess.  You could try bumping it up until 
everything passes, and we could then use that instead of having to skip 
locales in the tests.
