Timezone combo doesn't always change (doesn't retranslate) if I change language

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

lool noticed this bug. To reproduce:

1. Select Espanol as your language, Forward
2. Select France ("Hora de Francia") as your timezone, Back
3. Select Francais as your language, Forward
4. Note that the zone is still "Hora de Francia", but should be "France"

The problem does not occur if you either don't change the default zone at all or if you choose a zone in a different region.

One easy fix is to make sure that the combo boxes are reset every time the page is entered:

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.1.12

ubiquity (2.1.12) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Add osextras.unlink_force, equivalent to 'rm -f', to save on tedious
    exception handling.
  * Only restart debconf-communicator when changing language, not every time
    we switch page. This speeds up page transitions quite a bit, and should
    incidentally fix LP: #508725 as well.
  * GTK frontend:
    - Check plugin builders as well when adding widgets (setting their
      names, making them callable by the toplevel, etc.). This fixes
      translations of the language, timezone, and keyboard pages.
  * Fix immediate retranslation when changing language.
  * Add a semaphore to misc.regain_privileges and misc.drop_privileges, so
    that a drop/regain pair always returns to the previous state.
    misc.drop_all_privileges is now more clearly one-way, enforced by an
  * Add a context manager (raised_privileges) and a function decorator
    (raise_privileges) that are equivalent to a
    regain_privileges/drop_privileges pair, but that wrap up the required
    try/finally logic to make it less likely that we'll end up at the wrong
    privilege level by mistake.
  * When attempting to upgrade the installer, only stop debconf-communicator
    once we've determined that we actually have something to upgrade
    (LP: #495175).
  * Require Python 2.6, for the 'with' statement.
  * Move default GRUB target calculation to ubiquity.misc, which is a better
    location for common code than ubiquity.components.summary. Try to avoid
    using (hd0) as the target (prefer the first device from grub-mkdevicemap
    output if possible), and, when installing from a non-CD medium, only
    reset the default boot device if we would otherwise end up installing
    GRUB to the installation medium.
  * Initialise FilteredCommand.ui_loop_level earlier, just in case
    (LP: #484452).

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Allow the user to set a hostname in oem-config.
  * Finally, finally, finally successfully work around GTK+ not
    supporting height-for-width in labels.
  * Remove labels created by plugins from the focus chain.
  * Don't try to generate an apparmor cache in oem-config.
  * Slightly better exception printing in scripts/install.py
  * GNOME Bug #56070 (can't click button twice) has long since been
    closed. Remove hack.
  * Automatic update of included source packages: localechooser
    2.12ubuntu3, user-setup 1.28ubuntu3.

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * Drop old hack for reconfiguring mythbuntu-default-settings since
    this is fixed in user-setup now.
  * Drop old hack for copying ^xserver-xorg onto the target system. No
    longer necessary as thse variables don't exist in current installs.

  [ Dylan McCall ]
  * Use slideshow for language variants if available (LP: #476269).

  [ Michael Terry ]
  * Reset contents of timezone combo boxes every time the timezone page is
    entered (LP: #461104).
