Prior to this update, the Dashboard cookie containing user preferences would not persist after logout. Consequently, user preferences such as language needed to be reconfigured. With this fix, the Dashboard cookie persists and user preferences are retained after logout.

Description of problem:
When changing language (under Settings) to a different language, it seems to work and take place - but is not saved after logout-login.

(Note: time zone isn't saved either, related or a different BZ?)

Horizon doesn't use a database and doesn't persist any information. User settings such as the language and the timezone are stored in the cookie: if the user logs out then the cookie is lost and the information would need to be set again.

I think there are discussions about perhaps storing that kind of user-information in Keystone in the future, but I don't think it's going to happen soon.
