I plead guilty (-; , I made these formerly only displayed in English 
messages, translatable.

The thing that is new is that they are now translatable but they were 
always shown in the status pages but only in English.

I agree that these terms are too technical though...

In 0.23 these and other messages were always shown in English.

For some of them the problems was not that they were not translatable 
but that the translation files were not loaded by mythcommflag, 
mythfilldatabase, etc...

For others the messages were shown to the user but they were not made 
translatable (by doing the proper call to Qt).

What my patch did was load the translation files and make these status 
messages translatable.

I did not address the fact that they were possibly too technical, only 
the fact that they were shown to the user (ie user-facing) and as such 
should be made translatable.

I guess I should have suggested back then that they should be made more 
user-friendly by somebody who actually understood what they meant but, 
as I said, these were always shown in the status pages..

Have a nice day!
