I just noticed also that the language pack problem is also occurring on login/index.php when I am already logged in as well.

What language do you have selected in that user's profile?

I just was playing around with that and discovered that en is the user's language. When I changed it to my new language pack the problem disappeared.
However, this still leads me to a feature request, or perhaps I am missing something that already exists. Is there a way to force the initial language chosen for a user to be something other than English?
And also, perhaps a feature that allows the admin to prevent the student from changing their language altogether would be nice. In my case I have different language packs with names like en_gd (for my site) and en_oe (for a certain course) and displaying these to students will simply confuse them.

OK, never mind the part about forcing the initial language. I was seeing English for accounts I created before I created the new language pack.
However, the feature request for hiding this option altogether still stands. In the meantime I will just hack it.

Sorry, which option do you want to hide?

I want the option to be able to hide the option that allows students to change their language.

In the admin configure variables page you can choose which languages you want to show, and also hide the language menu entirely.
