This time, you're not too late. There's still some time before the 1.3
release :)

I leave that to Simon and Lübbe.

That's a problem of the list control. The string length of columns is
limited. I can maybe try to overcome this limitation, but it's a lot of
work and not sure to even work.

The listbox now has the focus when the dialog is shown (rev 5119).

Fixed in revision 5120.

That will take some time to implement. Not sure if I can do it for the
1.3 release though...

Fixed in revision 5121.

I think two menu entries for (almost) the same isn't a good idea. Also,
project admins might want to force users to use english for the logs.
