Admin bar retains site language in front end

If you've selected a user language, the admin bar is only in your selected language while you're in the admin.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Add at least one additional language to system.
2) Go to User Profile and select a different language
3) Visit site front end; admin bar will be in the system language instead of your user selected language.

@joedolson and I tested this together at WCUS Contributor day. I first noticed it because when using the RTL Tester plugin for theme testing. There seemed to be an issue when switching to a RTL language. The Admin bar on the front end would not get the proper styles. We suspected this could be related to user admin languages, and tested.

That's currently by intention, as a few bugs need to be resolved first.
