Problem in switching locale of NetBeans multi-lanuge release

Update: This problem described here will only apply to MS Windows XP Chinese version.

In my opinions, on daily working platform, the i18n font problem of JDK/NetBeans has become history. But as I have filed a bug into IssueZilla, this problem is again appeared in this case:

1. download the multi-language release install bundle

2. (Because I'm not happy with some translating, so) switch to the language en by appending one startup parameter into $NetBeans/etc/netbeans.conf file:
netbeans_default_options="$THE DEFAUlT AFTER INSTALL --locale en"
the syntax is: --locale language[:country[:variant]]

3. you will see below result after started: the famous font problem is out again - displayed as
Small Box

Currently, if I want to a workarounds for this problem, you can do this:

1. Revert back to the default locale the JVM running on, and I have to pleasure with unclear translating.

2. download the English bundle

Another way to dismiss the the square boxes (the display error text) :
1. new userdir or remove the old one will help the Welcome text out.

2. use '--laf javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalLookAndFeel' will use a different JFileChooser (Open Project) and the left navigator pane won't displayed.
