OK, how should us non-mentors have handled this differently?  It had
definitely run a long ways before I was able to catch up with it.

Anyway, before you spend a lot of time verifying RC7, please read the
[DISCUSS] thread.  I'm increasingly concerned that we have a major issue.

Om, I ran the installer in the debugger so I could hack in a change to the
default locale.  For some reason, the StringTools(LocaleID.DEFAULT) always
returns en_US on my system.  The menus in most other apps are in Portuguese
so I think I have the locale set correctly.

Anyway, if I override the default locale to be pt_BR, el_GR, en_AU, or
en_GB, I get an exception thrown, and lots of strings are missing from the
UI, just like Stefan said.

So this means that whatever percentage of our customers are in Brazil,
Greece?, Australia, or Great Britain are going to have a poor initial
impression.  I don't know what percentage of folks that is, but now I am
going to change my vote to -1 because I think it is enough folks.
