I just realized, this patch will fail with multi-language sites. Only
one localization will be stored in the database, and keep being used
regardless of user choice.
This really needs a different fix for this and the earlier reason.

The forums vocabulary title ('Forums') is not localizable.
Workaround is to directly edit the vocabulary table.

Here is  a patch.

Where exactly is this title displayed? As far as I can tell, the
vocabulary is only saved once, so changing the localization won't
affect the title if you've already caused _forum_get_vid() to be
invoked one way or the other...

Steven, this title is surely displayed if you use some multifaceted
navigation tool (eg. taxonomy navigation modules).

Those were really two points, I guess it wasn't clear.
My point is that this patch does not appear to solve the problem if you
already have an untranslated forums title in the database. Changing the
localization at that point will not affect it, as the variable
"forum_nav_vocabulary" will be set.
