I found a post that fixes the issue...

Go to "System Preferences" -> "International" -> "Formats"

If you see a small yellow triangle and the warning:

"This region is incompatible with some older applications. Such applications will use the most recent compatible region."

I've used Bermuda (English) for my region and that's probably why my locale (LC_ALL) was not set properly. Leopard must have removed locales for my country for some reason...

After I changed the region to United States and then try tried my script in the terminal again - it worked!!
