Enlarge the window before starting. OS? If *nix, try to use a XTerm console,
and see if that improves.

There are some possibilities. In general TP functions don't, and Delphi
functions do honour the locale. Delphi (sysutils) routines often have a 
TFormatSettings parameters where you can pass custom locale settings.

Or try setting "decimalseparator" to ','
