Rainer, this looks like a separate problem (and I don't think it's particularly related to ubiquity, either). Please file it separately.

Dylan, I hope it's OK with you, but I'm going to go with a slightly different fix - there's a more fundamental bug in ubiquity's handling of the locale attribute on frontends that I think is what's really at fault here. I've tested my fix to that and it solves this bug. The slideshow's own handling of locales seems to be wrong - as far as I can see, it doesn't fall back from (e.g.) de_DE to de the way it should. As such I think I'd like to keep the locale selection code where it is at the moment. Hop onto #ubuntu-installer for a chat if you think this is wrong?
