Description Michal Jaegermann 2002-07-12 12:18:15 EDT
Description of Problem:

In an "English" session a default name is "Screenshot.png" but when
"Russian" session is used (I did not try other languages) a name proposed
by a screen dump dialog starts with '-'.  Not strictly a bug, as that name
is legal, but may cause a grief to users with a cursory knowledge of
Unix conventions.
Comment 1 Jonathan Blandford 2002-08-21 16:25:20 EDT
it's definitely in the po file.  I'm a little hesitent about touching that given
my lack of russian knowledge.  Is it just an extraneous '-'?
Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2002-08-21 16:34:00 EDT
Yes, just this extra '-'.  Whatever is the name I can assure you that
'-' is not a letter in a cyryllic alphabet. :-)  This looks like a slip
of a finger by whomever wrote this po file.

It is pretty obvious what kind of troubles will result.
Comment 3 Jonathan Blandford 2002-08-21 16:51:54 EDT
I just checked in a fix into gnome-i18n.  hp, can you close this next time you
pull in new po files?
Comment 4 Jonathan Blandford 2002-08-27 20:52:24 EDT
Fixed in rawhide and gnome-cvs.
