Comment 10 for bug 135752

Just to re-cap, to get this bug fixed at least two checks/actions (in pseudo-code) should be done:

// if the default language is not listed at all, it's a sure sign repositories haven't been refreshed
if (default_language !exists in language list) { apt-get update }

// if language support for the default language isn't installed, it should be
if (language list[default_language] != INSTALLED) { install(default_language) }

Currently neither is done.
