OK, this may be a BUG in either Tomcat (that version, but also in 4.1.29), because I've seen it reported with both SUN & IBM JDk or JRE.
Read this http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jsp?forum=33&thread=230144&message=820195, it may be of use or this http://www.mail-archive.com/tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org/msg50959.html

Have you got your classpath set to something odd?

Try unsetting the classpath before you run startup.sh (or startup.bat)

TimYatesCommented:
that is, assuming you have just installed the JDK with defaults, and installed Tomcat with defaults :-)

Another thing...where is Timcat installed?  Which directory?  does it have spaces in the path?

Are you on Windows?

I am on Windows2000 Advanced Server and Tomcat is installed in my D: drive.
   Nothing strange in my classpath.

have you done any special setting in your system? I've seen a lot of messages like yours on the internet, all the time it had something to do with a system locale. I don't know why your configuration does not find en_US, but I have an ideea why it could not find en_GB for others :)
So, what is your system locale?

PS:I tried your config as you described it and it worked fine.
