I agree, we really need a "cancel" button for the language switching
dialog.

But when the user clicks on the language flag, he already expresses his
intent to change the language - why should he confirm this action once
more? Apart from that, the action will nevertheless not take effect
immediately, but after application restart.

Well, maybe our usability expert Holger can be provide us with the
killer-hint on this issue.

Status in RevAger 1.3 series: New

Bug description:
Version tested: RevAger trunk, Revision 49
Environment: Windows XP SP3, 32bit, Java 1.6.0.17-b04, 

Steps to reproduce:
- delete your revager settings directory, start RevAger.
- click on the language flag
- choose the desired language and click the confirm button.

Expected behavior:
- after selecting the language, RevAger instantly changes the language or 
offers the option to restart itself to make the changes take effect.

Actual behavior:
- clicking the language button in the selection gives almost no visual feedback.
- clicking the confirm dialog does not close the popup window
- the language is not switched, and no indication why this is the case is given 
- the user has to "guess", that a restart of the application might be required.

Another minor usability flaw: Why do we need this confirm button for changing 
the language actually?
