Default locale has stopped working


Our site used to have default locale set to “suomi” (“fi”).

This has stopped working, and when as an admin I go to forum preferences (admin/site_settings/category/required) and change the user default locale to “suomi” and press save, the value remains but has no effect. After reloading preferences page, the value is again “English”.

We have no such experiences, but we are running the stable branch. Nothing particular going on with the Finnish locale which I upkeep neither. Ping @Silvanus and @probus whose sites run 1.9.0.

Hmm I wonder, is this related to @fantasticfears recent change on site settings being per-locale? cc @sam

Everything is working fine with us. We are currently running v1.9.0.beta2 +101 (yeah I know I’m a bit behind…).
