This reminds me a bit of Android actually. I use an app called custom locale to get around the frustrating force-locale issue in order to force various apps to show up in Gaelic but that aside, it has a bizarre impact on the weather app. It cause the app to fluctuare between English and Gaelic city/town names. Some days I get "Glasgow", some days I get "Glaschu" - even though AFAIK the app hasn't been localized (just the standard weather app that comes with my phone). There seems to be no pattern to it. I suspect it, as the behaviour you described, is probably dependent on more than one factor (i.e. beyond just telling the system that it's locale xx-YY). Which is part of what makes this so frustrating.

There's of course also the scenario of a locale you cannot select on any OS but which has a LO localisation. Like Oromo, Kashmiri or Bodo which I cannot find in the locales on offer in Windows 7 but which have LO localizations.

know why this happens. Maybe it is a bug in Windows itself. Or
Scottish Gaelic is not as developed locale as Latvian or others. I can
force Scottish Gaelic UI of the installer, msiexec /i
LibreOffice_4.0.1.2_Win_x86.msi TRANSFORMS=:1084. But even in this
case I won't have Scottish Gaelic UI automatically selected for
installation. I have to use the msiexec /i
LibreOffice_4.0.1.2_Win_x86.msi TRANSFORMS=:1084 UI_LANGS=en_GB,gd
command, to install with English (Great-Britain) and Scottish Gaelic
UI, of msiexec /i LibreOffice_4.0.1.2_Win_x86.msi TRANSFORMS=:1084
UI_LANGS=gd for Scottish Gaelic only.
