Hey, Jonathan, I am glad you and Ralf see it my way.  I am not saying
change the language for the entire session. I am saying change the
language for any newly opened instance of an application. Yes, the other
would be nice, but I knew that wasn't going to happen.

However, for all those people telling me that gdm solves the problem, I
have tested this, it shows EVERY language, not the ones shown as valid
(in /etc/system-config/i18n) for my system. I don't know, maybe this is
best, but to make it simpler for machines with fewer languages being
used, it would be nice.

Ralf, I am sorry I didn't state it clearly (and maybe not at all)
earlier.

Have a good one.

Trever
