can't undo language change - Evolution & Pan under KDE3.2


I am running Mandrake 10 (and love it). I operate 99% of the time in English (normally British English but that is really not a major issue... any English will do!) Sometimes I switch my keyboard to German and very very rarely I need to change the whole language of the system for a few minutes. In the past (running Gnome 2 on Redhat 9) I never had a problem with this. However, a week ago I changed the language setting to German. I later changed back to English, but at least two major apps are refusing to change back. Ever since, Evolution & Pan operate in German. German menus, German names for Inbox (i.e. Eingang) and so on. This isn't a problem per se, in that I am comfortably bilingual, but it is annoying. I like my system to be consistent and I like to be in control!

Any ideas what I need to do to undo this change? AFAICT no other applications are stuck in German and KDE itself is comfortably English!

This is driving me verrückt.

Sorry, why does this always happen? I changed country settings - had tried this before - and it made no difference. Then I logged out and back in again - instead of restarting from within the session - and it worked. This is crazy. So the problem is over but I don't understand!
