And that's where I might be wrong. :)

Bad me, should have had a closer look at the patch before replying. From
a fairly quick grepping of the libgnomeui sources it appears these
strings at least are partially new, rather than existing strings simply
marked for translation.

I do, however, stand to the above. ;)  Sorry for the noise. I'll creep
back into my hole now, letting you GTP guys handle this properly...

Keep up your great work making GNOME accessible to all people!
