Especially VLCMain isn't the place where string conversations should take place. This legacy code dating back to VLC 0.3.x in 2002..

Yeah, I also played around with this approach. But this leads to some problems, especially as sometimes p_item->psz_longtext (tooltip text) seems to be NULL. That leads to crashes when you select some parts in prefs as _() cannot handle NULL strings obviously.

Here, some extra ifs seems to be needed to avoid that.
