Description caolanm 2005-03-29 09:11:27 UTC
On first start the system locale is taken and the default user locale is set to
the system locale. But first the closest "installed" locale is found and that is
used as the user locale. so if you have e.g. sv_FI as your locale sv_SE is set.
It would be nicer if the system locale is set as the user locale even if it is
not installed, e.g. en_IE, en_GB and sv_FI amoung others. The UI will still use
the "closest" locale so that remains unchanged, but the default language for
documents gets set to what the user might expect.

Patch attached, the one downside is that currently the license to show a user is
taken from this locale, and not the "closest" installed locale. My patch simply
hacks it out to use the en-US license which is not ideal.
