Comment (by mcs):

 The fix is to re-populate the contents of a file named update.locale
 (located within the top-level omni.ja file).  This needs to be done during
 the locale packaging that is done within gitian/descriptors/*/gitian-
 bundle.yml  I have a patch that I am testing now.

 The code in nsUpdateService.js reads the contents of this file and uses
 that when replacing %LOCALE% within the update URL.  We can fix this for
 4.0-alpha-3 but I am not sure what to do about 4.0-alpha-2 (non en-US
 bundles will be "upgraded" to en-US bundles).  One that happens, users
 will have to download a new non-English copy of TB.
