Yeah :-)  I'm not 100% sure of my corrections for the same reason.
I guess now it should go into CVS and we find out if other people
have problems.

Can we put the language-check stuff in a function somewhere
and do it just once and then cache the result?  
(I'm thinking it may be useful elsewhere at some time.)
Eg, like user_home_dir() in common/shared.c

Is there any problem with leaving the English version as
just helpdata.txt instead of helpdata.en.txt?
(And check for strcmp(language,"en"), if necessary?)
Because that makes it clear that the English version is
the primary one, and the others are translations, which 
might not be as up-to-date.
