Yes, I noticed some quirk in locale selection as well, I'll investigate.
It looks like in a localized UI (not en-US) the paired strings of the
language list are shifted by an offset of one and display something
different than the actual locale. This may be related to a pair being
inserted to the original en-US .src file that does not have
a translation yet and thus is missing.
