Hm... why are you so sure?
I hope we agree that the language start-up dialog must die. I mean, it
is redundant and absurd. I think my patch does what's expected: It
starts the application first time in the default locale and still
allows the user to explicitely select another language in the
Preferences menu, which will still preserve until it's changed again.

I don't understand why you want to introduce just another option to
the languages menu. The language is a per-user setting. How often do
users (a) change application languages to something different than
their locale and (b) change their locale?
