I've collected here the place where translatable strings "_Start"
appears. Even if this will never appear in the UI as you said,
shouldn't be good have at least translator comments?

However, 'cause all those "_Start" string will appear as a single
translatable message in PO files, I suppose that will not so simple
manage all those comments

Similar for "_Stop" (but no pastebin, sorry). Just please note that
"_Stop" label also appears in

  /* name, stock id */         { "Stop", GTK_STOCK_STOP,
  /* label, accelerator */       N_("_Stop"), NULL,
  /* tooltip */                  N_("Stop loading the current location"),
                                 G_CALLBACK (action_stop_callback) },

I still have a doubt: as the one that worked hard to implement this
feature, do you agree on searching for different verbs to describe
those actions, or do you think we have to use "Start/Stop XXX"?
