[Gvsig_english] gvSIG 1.11 RC1 Select by buffer zone problem

I get this problem on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Ubuntu Linux. I have
done some further investigation and the problem seems to be related to
the regional settings on my computers. We use a point as a decimal
symbol not a comma. The comma is used as a grouping symbol.
I have run the 'select by buffer' tool with 6 different buffer sizes to
show you the problem. In the list below the first number is the buffer
width I entered (in metres), the second value is the buffer width that
gvSIG calculates (this is the value from the log file):
You can see a pattern here. gvSIG is misinterpreting the decimal point
as a grouping symbol.
