Bug Description

The departments menu in Apps scope has some extra top-level departments, such as "3D", that don't exist in the Store.

There are three causes for this issue, all connected:
1) we have entries in the departments db with locale "", and they are used as a fallback for name lookups
2) we never update it while refreshing departments in the Store scope, as we use non-empty locale ("en_US" by default, or whatever reported by the shell), and only update entries for that locale.
3) the SQL query used for depts_v uses a join against deptnames table, but since the statement is not restricted for a specific locale, it just uses all names, including the ones that are never updated because of (2).
