* Empty items in the beginner of the list.

I do not think this is duplicated of bug #1332584, because the problem here is not only the alphabetical sort, there is empty item on the list, some language names is lowercase others uppercase.

The list does not have a standard.

The language name is obscure. For example is difficult to find English since the lanaguage with "E" appear in two different positions. (first in the sections with uppercase letters, then in the lowercase letters section which is after the end of all uppercase letters).

The last entry in the list looks like is a unsupported utf8 value since it shows a list of squares.

I bet the last entry is a font we don't install. Not sure about the blank one(s), and we should maybe do a case-insensitive sort respecting the other rules.

The missing font seems to be Korean (ko_KR.utf8), the few un-labeled entries are for ca_ES.utf8@valencia, sr_RS.utf8@latin, and ug_CN.utf8@latin.

  [ Ken VanDine ]
  * [phone] Call waiting implementation

  [ Iain Lane ]
  * [sound] Set the index on construction to avoid a disconcerting
    animation when entering the page. (LP: #1342533)
  * Run pylint and pyflakes on the right directory so they actually work
    and fix the errors.
  * revert lenient AppArmor profile since we won't be limiting access to
    ofono in this manner. Furthermore, due to a naive check in media-
    hub-server for the connecting process' profile name, this allows
    system-settings to playback files via media-hub-server again (LP:
    #1342321) (LP: #1342321)
