It seems that French Canadians got the short shrift again—this time courtesy of their smartphones. Some French-speaking Android users have reported system-breaking bugs connected with the Canadian French language option, according to a thread on Google's Android Open Source Project Issue Tracker.

Setting an Android 5.0 phone to Canadian French can apparently cause a SystemUI crash, particularly when charging or syncing the device.

The issue seems to affect Nexus phones and tablets running releases of Lollipop and does not appear to impact any other language settings. Many of the affected users have chosen to set their phone to American English for the time-being, according to Android Police.
