Well the issue that currently sawfish doesn't like (_ "string") anywhere
else than in list/alist widgets, therefore I can't mark the strings to
translate and the gnome translation team doesn't know about them, more:
the gnome-i18n-team uses intltool to create pot/po files, all strings
not marked (_ ) aren't recognised, so they end up as #~ in the .po files
after the gnome-i18n-team have updated a po file (latest one is de), so
they won't be included in the final .mo file. That's why I run 

./ de 

and such, to keep the old strings in, since they are in most cases
valid. I'm posting a copy of this mail to the gnome-i18n mailing-list,
to let the peeps from there know the issue. And I want to kill it before
