Freeze break request: string change in gnome-control-center


We have this little bug:

Here, the Display capplet says "Mirror Screens" in a checkbox, but it
says "Cloned Output" in the widget to control the monitor positions.
Vincent suggested that we make the second string more consistent with
the first one, and then we can reduce the nerdy terminology as well.

I want to commit the attached patch, which simply changes "Cloned
Output" for the same "Mirror Screens".  This would have the effect of
reusing the translations we already have for "Mirror Screens", and it
works well in English (or semi-well; "Mirrored Screens" may be better in
the canvas).

I'm not sure how well it works in other languages.  At least es.po has a
suboptimal translation, as "Espejar pantallas" has a made-up word.
("Pantallas espejo" or even "Pantallas en espejo" would be better.)

Thoughts? :)

    bnc381027 - Use 'Mirror Screens' for consistency with the checkbox
    2008-08-19  Federico Mena Quintero  <federico novell com>
    	* xrandr-capplet.c (get_display_name): Use "Mirror Screens"
    	instead of "Cloned Output" in the display of monitors, to be
    	consistent with the corresponding checkbox from the Glade file.
