I find a possible bug with how fvwm handle my French locale. The
apostrophe is part of that language and fvwm is not consistant on how
it handle that character. As example, if I have:

msgid "Resume hybride with screen lid"
msgstr "Veille puis hibernation lors de la fermeture de l'écran"

into fvwm-crystal.po, the following will work fine:

All (TestLocale-Dialog) Close
DestroyModuleConfig TestLocale-Dialog: *
*TestLocale-Dialog: Title "$[gt.Resume hybride with screen lid]"
*TestLocale-Dialog: Text "$[gt.Resume hybride with screen lid]"
*TestLocale-Dialog: Line Center
*TestLocale-Dialog: Button quit "$[gt.Quit]" ^M
*TestLocale-Dialog: Command Nop

Module FvwmForm TestLocale-Dialog

# but what follow will result into a screwed up menu:

DestroyFunc TestScreenLidSuspend
AddToFunc TestScreenLidSuspend
+ I Nop

DestroyFunc TestNoScreenLidSuspend
AddToFunc TestNoScreenLidSuspend
+ I Nop

DestroyFunc TestScreenLidSuspend-generator
AddToFunc TestScreenLidSuspend-generator
+ I DestroyMenu recreate /TestScreenLidSuspend
+ I Piperead "echo AddToMenu /TestScreenLidSuspend \\'$[gt.Resume
hybride with screen lid]\\' TestScreenLidSuspend"

DestroyMenu /TestScreenLidSuspend
AddToMenu /TestScreenLidSuspend
+ DynamicPopupAction Function TestScreenLidSuspend-generator

DestroyMenu /TestExit
AddToMenu /TestExit
+ '%22x22/fvwm-crystal/gdm.png%$[gt.Resume hybride with screen lid]'
Popup /TestScreenLidSuspend

Menu /TestExit
show than the main menu is already screwed up. 

If I replace the "'" by a "_" into the translated string, it work fine
in both cases. I try to escape the "'" into the po file, but in the
best case it doesn't helped. Is it something I didn't figured out I can


If you have a problem and you are not doing anything to fix it, you are
at the heart of the problem.
