Decimal separator problem

Thank you for your response Derek.
For the moment, i have found a workaround for my problem :
If i specify "export LANG=fr_FR" (before locale = C) into the console
before starting gnc, decimal separator became the comma by default
with mac os x.
All is thus uniform between all os.
But, according to me, in this case, the string should be converted
into locale settings when gnc displays it into scheduled transaction
and when the formula is treated by SX code.
Other question : what is the SX code ?
