Subject RE: [IMPORTANT][Call for UX review] [Windows 8 certification]Test for "Section 11 Apps must support multi-user sessions" is not tested by Windows App Certification Kit

4 hours is too short.  This is an international project with contributors in different time
zones around the globe.  For example, when you posted this message, it was 01:26 where I am

I suggest that you either do CTR (commit it and be prepared for it to be rolled back, however
unlikely) or do an RTC (review, then commit) that provides adequate time for interested parties
to review and respond).  If you want to ensure that CTR does receive review, report that you
are doing so; also use a commit message that suggests review is desired.

I am reviewing yuanlin's updated patch for the new dialog message
 And I suppose it will remove "- Fatal Error" from the error dialog
title string late, so this will not introduce more strings for

If there is no more concerns in 4 hours from now, I will commit this
string patch to 3.4.1 at first.
