In general, I am okay to update the string to fix this kind of ugly bug.

On the other hand, the next stable update of Icehouse is scheduled next week.
If the patch lands soon, it is a simple fix and I believe translators
have time to work on it.
Note that as I announced in this list last week, I have a plan to
import translations for Icehouse,
and it may be the last import for Icehouse I am planning.
(it doesn't mean other folks import more translaitons in the future
Icehouse update.)

/FYI/ In Japanese case, we assigned the correct localized string for
the current (wrong) string.

For translations, please fix the translation in Transifex.
As I wrote above, I can propose a patch to import the latest translations.
