I'm not sure what you mean by "label". The label shown for a cd disk is read

Or am i misunderstanding. Please give a bit more detail.

The times it doesn't work, is there any processes running from the desktop

I did not check at the time.  Something might have been running.

As I mentioned in my second post, I did not experience this problem on
subsequent language switches.  So it wouldn't hurt my feelings if you close this
bug as not-reproducible.
