I doubt that there's anything hardcoded in the control center
module but that something is missing or miss configured.
Check ~/.xsession-error is, there's something about 'lo'.

As I wrote I still think it's a config problem not a control center
problem. Double check if your /usr/share/locale/lo has entries
and contents like, e.g.,
$ l /usr/share/locale/de | grep -v cups_
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6 2000-01-29 21:51 charset
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1458 2004-05-28 11:39 entry.desktop
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 357 1999-05-31 15:48 flag.png
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 32768 2004-09-13 23:00 LC_MESSAGES

To me vi is Zen. To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
You discover truth everytime you use it.
