Bug#254452: Languages switches to english after rebooting during base-config
Quoting Thorsten Schaefer (firstname.lastname@example.org):
> Package: base-config
> Version: 2.23
> Debian version: Debian Installer (testcandidate 1, also various daily builds
> of beta 4 versions)
Hmm. I don't really see what's meant by "various daily builds of
beta4". Beta4 is now over and not rebuilt.
Still we have these imprecisions around all build versions.

Yesterday, I made very extensive tests of sid_d-i 20040612 with
various combinations of languages.
What you described only happened to me with Japanese+Japan choice and
2.6 kernel. The 2nd stage was in English. I think this is currently a
workaround for a kernel problem.
However, this was never noticed for 2.4 installs. Tested with ja+JP,
fr+FR on my system.
