The index of %s is damaged or missing.
- Ignore the problem. Seeking might not work.
- Bypass the problem. This might take some time.
- Cancel.

Furthermore, do users (need to) know what an AVI index is and how VLC is
going to fix it internally? Do they really need to know more than
"foobar.avi is damaged." and "See log for details." perhaps?
