Must admit I haven't tried this on a terminal server, but it works otherwise.....
1. Log on as a user and configure the settings exactly as you want them.
2. Now export the registry key: HKCU\Control Panel\International
3. Now just add this key to their logon script, so that it runs as soon as they log on and configures the settings for them

export the registry file from the "fixed" profile and save it as regionset.reg (for example)

You just need a line in the logon script that says:
regedit /s <path>\regionset.reg      where <path> is the path to the reg file on the server.

Users will need 'read' rights to the reg file location.
If you don't already have a logon script, just paste the above line into notepad and save the file as logon.bat
