      Description

      A clear example where this causes big problems is the space index that has an URL of the form:

      http://localhost:8080/xwiki/bin/view/Main/SpaceIndex?space=Test
      

      But when changing language, i.e. pressing the language button in the top-right of the UI, you get to the following URL:

      http://localhost:8080/xwiki/bin/view/Main/SpaceIndex?language=ro
      

      ...effectively landing on a different space (Main) than the one you were on (Test).

      This can significantly break applications that rely on query strings.
