Bug Description

I suspect it has something to do with the special language codes 'zh-hans' and 'zh-hant'. Probably it's the code in LangCache.py that needs to be tweaked.

On a just installed Ubuntu 11.10 i get chinese in my Ubuntu i see it into installed language, but is not installed and i cannot remove from installed languages...

So to remove unwanted chinese (not installed) from terminal i do:

localedef --list-archive

to list the locales defined

and then to manually remove unwanted locales

sudo localedef --delete-from-archive ....

Just did a fresh install, and I see something written in Chinese in the languages list, despite I have asked a Hungarian install. The packages are not installed however: the "Kínai" boxes are empty. localedef reports the presence of zh_CN and zh_SG.

I've done some other tests in bug #960314, have a look please.
It could be the same as this one.
