I don't know anything about the actual CVS-release but with 1.1.10 I have to
disable nls-support, because there are so many doubled menus (some german, some
english).  Maybe it's because I'm using a libc5 based system but I think there
are many systems out there with similar problems.

Well, what I understand about half-translated plug-ins is, that if the binding
for the inclusion in menus and so on is fully translated and the rest isn't
that isn't bad, but if some menu entries are and others not is very bad.
