Thanks, applied.  Sorry, I had to remake your string again.

Not every user would understand user host   I just want mc to explain the
situation in simple terms - who locked the file, from what machine and by
which process.  In fact, "file %s is locked by %s" cannot be translated
into Russian (and probably other languages) without knowing if %s is a
user or an abstract token.  The translation would be "user %s has a lock
on file %s" or "file %s has a lock with the name %s".

Anyway, this dialog will be confusing until it's documented, regardless of
what the message says.

I've applied your patch.  Thank you!
