## Overwiew

In the first screen of the graphical installer, the “Language, Keyboard and
License Agreement” screen, there is a drop-down menu to select language. When
this control is focussed, it is possible to select a language with the up and
down arrow keys.

Every entry that is “scrolled” through will be downloaded. Example: To
the language from English (US) to German with the arrow keys, Estonian,
Finnish, French, Galician, Georgian are in between. All these are downloaded
and applied to the UI before German is reached, downloaded, and applied.

## Steps to reproduce

1. Start the installer, with an internet connection.

2. In the first installation screen “Language, Keyboard and License
Agreement”, focus the “Language” drop-down with ‘TAB’ or by clicking
on it and
then clicking the background.

3. Use arrow keys to scroll through options.

## Actual Results

All language options that have been scrolled through will have been downloaded
and the interface language will have been changed multiple times.

## Expected Results

Only the final language selection will be downloaded and applied, as if it was
selected by mouse click from the drop-down. I realise this is only a vague idea
of expected behaviour.

## Build date and hardware

Build 0246 (openSUSE-Leap-42.3-NET-x86_64-Build0246-Media.iso) on VirtualBox 5
(screenshot attached).

## Additional builds and platforms (Not sure how relevant)

Does not occur when changing language on an installed system through yast.
There, the selected language is only applied after hitting OK.
