I am part of the translation team for my language (pt), and i noticed
this issue while proof-reading the portuguese 'version' of the
installer. It was only after writing the BR that i actually found
where the strings are and noticed the warning about it's width.
Although we were able to shorten it down, i still think this matter
should be taken in consideration because limiting the width of the
translation may give rise to inferior, or even incorrect,
Thank you for any and all attention put on this matter,
