You can use this as a workaround:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[base,english,latin]{babel}
\usepackage{polyglossia}
\setdefaultlanguage{english}
\setotherlanguage{latin}
\begin{document}
\begin{latin}
Lorem ipsum dolor
\end{latin}
\end{document}

The maintainer of polyglossia plans an update to solve the clash
with babel, but I have no idea if it will repair this problem too.
