Description Zigger 2004-12-06 15:06:53 UTC
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
