Description Freddie Witherden 2019-11-15 01:05:06 UTC
On a ~AMD64 sci-mathematics/wxmaxima-19.10.0 changes language all by itself as soon as one makes *any* change in the settings dialogue.


$ rm ~/.wxMaxima
$ wxmaxima # Starts in English (correct + system default)
$ # Edit => Configure => Enter evaluates cells => Okay => Close
$ wxmaxima # Now starts in Portuguese
$ cat ~/.wxMaxima  | grep lang

where 153 corresponds to wxLANGUAGE_PORTUGUESE_BRAZILIAN.  My system is in en_GB and so there is clearly an issue here which causes it to write a bad config file.  Switching the value to 59 (English) resolves the issue.

Tried to replicate it with (upcoming) 20.07.0 on ~amd64, the variable "language" didn't move from English (value 0). All available translations were built for this run.
