Description

Weird issue on a single computer.
Everywhere there's a number box, or even when I convert a string to a number on the composer, I get a change of regional script for the numbers used.

Example: 47% shows up as ๔๗ %
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khmer_numerals
See screenshot. Copied and pasted number field in a notepad for clarity.

Any suggestion on how to locally fix this?
Windows 7 enterprise. Run off a local folder. Both 2.0 and 2.4 portable have the issue on that computer.

Please note I am using the portable version of 2.4.0 on a computer where I don't have local admin rights.

Also note that Labels are also behaving this way, not just the GUI.

A field named "Frequency" will show up just fine on a map, but if I try to format it differently, it will show up in Thai or Khmer.
(I don't use either language. Just French/English for me)

example:
field is Frequency with value 162.500

format_number("Frequency",3) > ๑๖๒.๕๐๐ (162.500 in khmer fonts)
"Frequency" > 162.5

screenshot has the following label:
concat(format_number("Frequency",3),' ; ',"Frequency")
