There are three instances in /install/profiles/xml/dublincore.xml where the locale is set to en_US appears instead of fr_FR, which causes some overlapping problems because the en_US locale is already defined.
A diff with corrections is attached.
A related note is the place_type "socken/socknar", in the base.xml, because en_US, en_CA and fr_FR translations are missing and replaced by socken/socknar. What is socken? A municipality? parish?
