Testing three languages is quite easier than testing all 70.  So I found that
the affected languages are Marathi and Nepali.  Hindi worked.

Just for clarification:  My babelbox did _not_ install the full desktop task,
but only some packages (gdm3, gnome-session, gnome-icon-teme, desktop-base to
be precise).

And indeed, if I change the pressed configuration to install the full dekstop
task, all three languages work without problems.  Is that the expected /
intended behaviour?  (Why did it work with Hindi then?)
