Changing the user interface language and saving does not work immediately until
one leaves Special:Preferences or forces a refresh. Expected an immediate
language change on save, as saving a changed skin preference is immediate.
"All changes of user interface languages are delayed one page view."
This includes the login of a user with UI language Y to a wiki with default
language X : the login confirmation comes with language X, the next pages in the
user language Y.
The patches in bug 2398 would fix this.

My previous comment was wrong -- this is a separate issue.
For Special:Preferences, the look-up of messages starts in SpecialPage.php
before the form-submission even starts to be processed.
Maybe a fix for both cases could hacked by a HTTP redirection back to the same page?
Added a redirect hack in HEAD
