I commited the second patch, although i changed how the commented out
part was made not translated. Its way to risky to leave the whole file
untranslated, as strings can easily be added to it later.

However, i'm not sure about the first patch. Its not uncommon for the
long and short string in gconf schemas to be similar. And I've never
seen schemas with only short strings, so I'm not sure how well our tools
etc handle that.
