Description of problem:
When using abrt-gui to report a crash, it pop up message that /var/spool/abrt/... is not writable and asks for an action. The text is eg:
Need writable directory, but '/var/spool/abrt/ccpp-2012-01-05-20:27:21-24154' is not writable. Move it to '/home/dkutalek/.abrt/spool' and operate on the moved copy?
This is confusing. Moved copy is nonsense. I thought it makes a copy and lost my dump by deleting dump in home. It performs a move actually! Although it says it doesn't have permissions!?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
moved copy :-)
Message is clear and consistent with actual action.

Make "Move and operate on the moved copy" message less confusing
_("Need writable directory, but '%s' is not writable."
- " Move it to '%s' and operate on the moved copy?"),
+ " Move it to '%s' and operate on the moved data?"),
