Could it be due to the following?

   * Prefer official language variants by adding the combination of selected
     language and country to the front on the language list (closes: #560045).
     If a preferred locale was selected, instead add the language and country
     combination from that to the languagelist as it will most likely also
     indicate the preferred language variant.
