Forum Profile: The Language field doesn't save changes

I was experimenting with changing my user locale for my account, and the Forum Profile page appears to be the place to do it. However, when I choose a different language in the Language drop-down under the Account section and save, the drop-down reverts to "Site Default" when the page refreshes. And, the locale value in the usermeta table does not change.

The language selector seems to work for me, both as a super admin and as a regular user. The user_meta locale key updates to match.

AFAIK the only thing that setting that alters is wp-admin which most people don't have access to, and for many sites on is not properly localised as not all plugins have translations/etc.

It doesn't change any front-end facing things that I know of.
