This sounds interesting (explain!).. how can i18n lead to segfaults?

Me included! Maybe I shouldn´t even reply here.. ;->

Well, half-translated is surely better than not translated at all, so this is
IMHO no reason to switch it of totally.

Maybe we should just push the translators a bit for the release (unless code
changes are necessary)..

Half-translated plug-ins are definitely no reason to forget it!! I mean, do
you want to translate "ls" to "vz" with LANG=de? mixed language environments
are the rule today, not the exception.

I don`t mind it either..

Or Sven! Even worse, Sven's changes required me to add something else
(which is not bad, but it introduced instabilities again), and Michaels
changes are very likely to cuase other changes as well... So I'd really
say: either we feature freeze or we forget 1.2....

BTW: I appreciated both new features a lot!

So..? ;)
