Issue remains in 1.12.6, but confirmed it's resolved in 1.13.x. We need to figure out what fixed this so we can backport.

Issue now appears fixed in 1.13 (and I think 1.12 too).

Issue appears unfixed in 1.10.1 while running OS X 10.7.3, same exact behavior as before.

Issue appears unfixed in 1.7.13 while running OS X 10.6.2, same exact behavior as before.

Tried rebuilding cache immediately afterwards, F5, but this doesn’t fix it either.

Assign all members in operator=.

cppcheck discovered a missing one, found more and fixed all operators=.
(This fix might also fix bug #13878, but not tested).

As you informed me on IRC you are running Linux; however, this is a Mac OS X/Wesnoth specific issue.

I'd appreciate it if anyone else running Mac OS X could test this, just to confirm it's not just me. At which point, if another person can, can the status be changed to "Confirmed"?

Yes, I committed a patch, not for this particular issue, but for a more general issue involving strings not being changed when language was changed. And as far as I'm concerned, I can't reproduce the issue: I can change languages several times in a row and buttons are properly updated.

With 1.7.6 the issue still persists. Was there a patch that fixed the issue? silene, if you know more information I'd be interested please.

Problems with buttons are being worked on, so please don't submit them as bugs for now.

This appears to be OS specific as 1.6.2 for Windows works fine. However, there is a graphical issue with languages that have words of varying length compared to the previous language chosen, causing the drawing the buttons on the main menu screen to look a little distorted. I'm not sure if this is a known issue being fixed [later?] or if this should require a new bug submission.

If you change the language more than once, you do not see the changes. In other words, you cannot change languages more than once.

1. Click "Languages" from the main menu.
2. Click another language and click "OK". Notice the language of the buttons have changed (assuming the language has a translation for them).
3. Click "Languages" (likely in another language!) from the main menu.
4. Click another language and click "OK". Notice the language of the buttons has not changed.

If I choose a language without a full translation and then choose a full one you will see some language updated, so it's almost like it's not allowing text to be replaced that has already been replaced before.

Quitting Wesnoth and re-opening correctly draws the last language chosen.

Erasing preferences and cache files does not resolve this issue other than it reverts to the system default.

I have been able to reproduce this with:

1.6.0, Mac OS X 10.4.11
1.6.3, Mac OS X 10.5.7
1.7.1, Mac OS X 10.5.7
