GRUB2 Update - despite RC_LANG set to de_DE.UTF-8 boot screen language was English

Leap 42.1 GRUB2 update to 2.02~beta2 (Build Date : Tuesday 29 December 2015 10:31:55 CET).

After the update the boot screen was displaying English language text.
Rewrote /boot/grub2/grub.cfg with YaST and the issue was resolved.

Has anyone else noticed this behavior?
Is an entry in the Release Notes needed?

The same thing happens when either the 13.2 kernel or the Leap 42.1 kernel is updated.

Is possibly a Release Notes entry needed?

If you think it is important to be mentioned in release notes, you need to open bug report. Posting here won’t make it happen.

That’s clear. But, it’s sometimes advisable to ask the community’s opinion before submitting a Change Request.
