[TYPO3-english] Do not understand RealURL translation

I have a menu with 4 languages: German, English, French and Italian. The 
configuration of the menu is done with

special.value = 1,4,0,3

French has thus sys_language_uid = 0, German 1, English 4 and Italian 3.

If I deactivate RealURL and I navigate to my homepage without any L= 
parameter, I get French content, when showing another language, the link 
to the French content uses L=0.

Now, when I activate RealURL, my website root shows French content and 
sys_language_uid = 0. But when I go to another language, the link back 
to French points to /fr.html and when I go to this page, 
sys_language_uid = 2 instead of 0.

2 is btw French too in my configuration but should not be used in this 

My RealURL conf reads:

       'GETvar'   => 'L',
       'valueMap' => array(
             'de' => '1',
             'fr' => '2',
             'it' => '3',
             'en' => '4',
       'valueDefault' => 'fr',

Is the mapping 'fr' => '2' the cause of this behaviour? I would have 
thought that special.value would be used.

Using sys_language_uid = 2 instead of 0 leads to using a page overlay 
that does not exist, as such it falls back to default language, French 
and the content is in French as I want. However there is no "current" 
language and French is not "active" in language menu.

Any idea of what to change?
