We at sr: had the same problem. However, Nikerabbit helped by doing some 
Language.php magic. Namely, the translated magic word should be the 
first in the array for the legitimate magic words for redirects, because 
upon redirection, the first magic word from the array is used. That's 
how we fixed it on sr: and now all redirects are localized.

The safest way is to file a bug report, but the easiest is to talk with 
the developers over IRC. Suit yourself ;)
