Well, I'd say that's merely by luck :)
For instance, if you boot in export mode you will get the "additional
locales" question, where the issue is the same (and the default is
empty). Of course that's just an instance, there are probably a lot
Just a side note: this is actually a bug concerning accessibility, for
the cases where a linear text is way simpler for the screen reader to
follow, and thus using the dialog frontend is not really an option.
