Normally, when localechooser is added, you should then get the prompt
for language+country. Which is partly what Timo had, as he mentions
being prompted for continent+country.

(IIRC, this happens at a later step while in "normal" installs this
happens at the very beginning of course)

localechooser was quite deeply revamped during the etch->lenny
release cycle so it could be likely that, for some reason, the
language question is not asked....which is probably not really
intended but just something not enough tested when localechooser was
