Bug Description

Even if I set my language (estonian) for the entire system, it is not applied for root. For example if I try to open Files as root from Plank, the dialog for the password is in english and also the Files itself.

If somebody can confirm that this is why my login's keyboard is stuck to qwetry I'll be happy to put a bounty on it :

I checked it with Estonian and Russian, and it doesn't work correctly. Fault is uncorrect behavior of the /etc/default/locale interacting with Switchboard.
