Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

(I'm guessing gdm is the appropriate package, but it might be the installer as well, or something completely different, like a larch.)

I just installed today's (or possibly yesterday's) daily build on an amd64 machine. In the installer, I chose Finnish as my language and locale. Booting into the installed system, gdm talks English, and after I log in, the locale ($LANG) is set to C, not fi_FI.UTF-8.

(The md5sum of the ISO used for installation is 31df1ed91ea9f354297b9b0c15829198)

I've seen the same behavior with Alpha 4, with English selected in the installer.
