If you mistakenly choose a language other than what you want
and go back to try again you won't always get very pretty results.

I started at the top of the list and tested some languages just
to see what happened and found that the font is not restored when
you go back to chose over again. This led to problems as this
font didn't contain the new languages characters.

I chose Czech first and Norwegian after that which made "dxde taster"
look wrong. Also there are parts of the screen that isn't updated
for all languages. Ie. the title of the help screens is not always
right if you chose one language and go back and chose another.

It seems that the problem is in changing between languages in different
iso-8859-* groups. I did not see it when going between Danish, English
French, Icelandic, Norwegian. But Czech made it happen.

Another thing is that if I choose a language, go back and choose another, the
keyboard layout is not set to that language by default.
