 Any idea how to fix this ? For untranslated
strings, gettext leaves the english text unchanged
(http://www.gnu.org/manual/gettext/html_node/gettext_149.html), so the
BeOS english interface is currently broken. IMHO we'd have to 1) convert
_every_ string by hand in vlc_dgettext() or 2) use UTF-8 po files, as
most interfaces handle it correctly.

 What do you think ?
