The original file is:
date: 2002/02/18 23:51:41; author: seth; state: Exp;
Which while dodgy probably did make it in time. But the string in question
does not seem to be localised in any locale so far (does the desktop
file not appearing in po/POTFILES affect this?) and is *grossly* wrong.
To an extent the string freeze needs to behave like the API freeze - if we
discover bad bugs, we still want it fixed.
