What language is this with?
Comment 2 Mary Ellen Foster 2005-05-23 15:10:16 EDT
English -- possibly British English, I can't remember if that choice gets made
before that point in the install or not.

I can't remember what packages it was that made it jump, but I'm convinced I saw
it; I suspect things like

I'm not seeing here although I can believe that it could happen.  Put in the
change to ensure that the string stays short enough such that the change
shouldn't occur, although that's a workaround at best.
