The 'best language' logic only applies if no wiki page is specified, i.e. it only applies to the default wiki page.
Suppose that you select a translated version of a wiki page, and then follow a link to another wiki page, which has also been translated (into the same language).
As is stands, you will probably see the original language version of the second wiki page, and not the translated version. On the face of it, this is an error.
You could, of course, fix this behaviour, by modifying the link in the translated version of the first page, so that it referred directly to the translated version of the second page. In this case, you could argue that the current functionality is in fact correct.
I would disagree, because it makes the process of translating wiki pages too difficult. It would mean, that when you translate a single wiki page, you must locate all other wiki pages in that language, which link to the page, and update the links in those pages. Although the backlinks feature would help find the relevant pages, I don't think that you can reasonably expect a translator to perform this task.
I have already fixed this issue and commited the changes to the Trunk, as revision 16611.
My solution is
(1) Add a hidden input field to the language selection list, so that a selection from this list can be positively identified.
(2) Apply 'best language' logic to all wiki requests, unless the request came via the dropdown list.
(3) When a request comes via the dropdown language list, store the
selected language as the user's preferred language in a session
(4) Use this session variable in the 'best language' logic, by placing it at the top of the list of preferred languages generated

Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
