When a non-admin user is logged in and uses the Language Preferences to prioritize a language such as Spanish first but they are on an English locale machine the web sites don't seem be getting the Spanish locale.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
.5. Login as a NonAdmin/NonPower user into Windows Vista
1. Menu -> Tools -> Options 
2. Select Content Tab
3. Languages Section -> Choose...
4. Add "Spanish (es)" and move it to the top of the list
5. Navigate to google.com
Actual Results:  
Website text still rendered in English.

Expected Results:  
Should have rendered in Spanish.

Interestingly, on my Windows 7 RC laptop there didn't seem to be a problem performing this and receiving the correct result.
