I have fixed all the warnings in TMerge in r9996. There are a couple
I'm not really happy with.

.txt and .bak flag up as errors. I have added these to the common term
base as txt and bak. Aspell will not accept the leading . and this
leaves scope for someone to enter txt when they really mean text. Not
much we can do here. If we leave it out and ignore the error, then we
will likely ignore genuine errors too.

"TortoiseMerge" is in the common term base, but "TortoiseMerge's" is
added to the english term base because other languages may use a
different form of the possessive.

I have allowed "whitespace" and "mousewheel" but not "wheelmouse".
This is simply based on common usage according to google's search
suggestions. Maybe right, maybe wrong.

Done a bit on the TortoiseSVN help too in r9999.

One thing I notice is that if I have build.include.user set to build
both TortoiseSVN and TortoiseMerge, the second spelling log overwrites
the first.
