Regardless of this issue, you may want to use the "\enquote" command
from the "csquotes" for convenient language-dependent quoting.  It
correctly takes into account not only the active Babel or polyglossia
language, but also the nesting level of quotes, and chooses the
correct quotation characters accordingly.
