Perhaps I am that user:-) but anyway, I reported the same problem with
MS IE on Japanese Windows to on March 18 with
the log below.

Although I'm not an expert, the problem apparently seems to be in the

unfortunately don't have access...

In any case, the "Language Negotiation Exceptions" section in the
following document might help.
