Thank you for the (fast) commit!

If some of them prove to be problematic I could make a patch that logs (using 
VERBOSE) the original English error message in the logs so that there will always be 
a place where the original English error message could be found. I tend to agree with 
you though that I doubt the currently translatable strings will cause much problem.

If somebody wanted to get the original error message there is always the possibility 
of switching the language back to English. If somebody master English well enough to 
post on mythtb-users then that person's English is certainly good enough to 
temporarily run Mythtv in English (as it usually is a lot easier to read in another 
language than our own than to write in it).

Once again thank you!
