strings not translated

Hi Cristian,

the warnings listed in that dialog stem from those gconf entries with a
non-default, i.e. user-specified, values in
/apps/gnucash/general/warnings/permanent.  The schema files define
translated descriptions for each key, a short one used as label for the
checkbox, and a long one showed as tooltip.  On linux this works as
intended, as can be seen from the GnuCash 2.2.7 screenshot attachment.

On Windows, the i18n of the descriptions seem to fail and I think I have
seen that before.  You may want to try the gconftool-2 command I
wrote---it will probably return an english string only, even if LANG is
it_IT.  Someone probably needs to sit down and check, fix or file that,
either in gconf or gnucash :-)
