Thanks for the report, however it seems to be filed against the wrong
component.  There is no "XFree86"[1] present in RHEL 4, however the problem
you're describing seems that of a higher level such as GNOME or KDE.

Please reassign to the proper component, and provide much greater details
as to what exactly you are doing to "set the language", what exact
application(s) you are running to do that, and what specific problems
are occuring.

Thanks in advance.

Setting status to "NEEDINFO_REPORTER" and awaiting requested information.

[1] X.Org X11 is the X Window System implementation in RHEL 4, provided by
    the "xorg-x11" packages.

Closing bug due to lack of information, and lack of feedback/response.

services directly for official Red Hat Enterprise Linux support, by
filing a web ticket at http://www.redhat.com/support or by telephone
