This is not a bug, but a deliberate design decision.  This is done to ensure
that the user does not have to navigate any menus in a language they don't
understand in order to reach the selection screen where they can pick their
own language.

I would strongly encourage you to file a bug report about this issue, using
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu>.  There's really no guarantee that
anyone else who's currently testing has encountered this same error, so the
best way to get it fixed for the official release is to make sure yourself
that it's reported.
