These are referring to titles of screens, not actual filenames.  Even
so, I agree they really aren't needed to be translated.

The hard part of combining these is that the strings can be mixed and
matched a whole bunch in the partitioning section.  I'll see if I can
combine a few more of those together.

yeah that screen is all just one big string passed into a textbox,
with different segments with little translatable pieces in them.  the
: is there for asthetic purposes.  it lines up the columns.

you can send them to me if you want or a tracker bug, both work fine for me.
