Thanks, your hint has made me making some progress.

By comparing the `printenv` output in linux terminal and in konsole I
see that both have `LANG=it_IT.UTF-8` (which is correct), but konsole
adds `LANGUAGE=it:en_US` which seems a strange value.
Unset the LANGUAGE variable make the script run fine.

I now have to find out what KDE setting is injecting the LANGUAGE
variable... there's nothing in bashrc or bash_profile, so it may be some
KDE setting.
