Summary05049: multi languages navigation problems
DescriptionIn multilingual surveys, when you switch language during the survey, the new language choice is not saved.
if you try to change to say German, it works for the 1st question, ie you re bounced back to the start page and can proceed in the requested language.
However if you want to switch language afterwards, the question that was displayed when you changed it is going to be translated, then clicking next you get mixed languages. The question is in the "default language", but the language menu is in the language you asked for.
Steps To ReproduceThis affects v1.89, v1.90 and v1.91RC4.
How to replicate the bug:
1) Make a new survey with 2 language choices
2) Enable tokens
3) create a test token entry and use it to log in the survey
4) While in the survey, change language. The page will update with the chosen language
5) Click the Prev or Next button. The language will be reset.

This bug only appears on token based surveys. If you use the "test survey" mode, everything will look ok.

Sure, it's only a small part of the survey, but the bug shows anyway.
Here's another way to put the problem, may be somewhat clearer: you can switch language only once, if you try it again, it will work only for the question you currently see.
