Wrong file open dialog if LC_ALL is set to de_DE

S4 - Minor

I'm running mscore-1.0-1.fc15.x86_64 in LINUX/Fedora 15.I Setting the preferred language to German by LC_ALL=de_DE. Then starting the open dialog in mscore by the

"Datei->Öffnen..." menu (means: File->open).

1. The open File dialog window has no frame so the window can't be managed or moved.
2. In the lower right corner of this open dialog, there is a button
controlling the type of files to be opened with a typo ("Dataien" instead of
"Dateien") and a wrong umlaut "ü" character . See attachment

at your 2nd point: I've fixed the "Dataien" to "Dateien" on the translation server (you should be able to grab the updated translation file tomorrow, it is build nightly, I think, check http://translate.musescore.org/translate/languages/de/download) But I don't understand why that ü is displayed wrongly for you, as far as I can see it is the same ü as used in several other places too, among them in the About Box. Are other umlauts displayed correctly then? They are in the Windows version (which also has the wrong "Dataien", apparently a typo of mine)

Renaming some file to ÜÜÜ.cap and trying to open it, the name of that file is mistyped in the open dialog (with usage of LC_ALL=de_DE). My standard language control is LC_ALL=en_US.utf8. Trying to open with that control, the filename is displayed correctly within the file open dialog. Same wrong behaviour with other umlauts (see new attachment with a open dialog trying to open a file with name "ÄÄÄÄ.cap" ).

The about box is shown well with de_DE (Title: Hilfe->Über MuseScore).

I'm sorry, I have no windows box, only LINUX/Fedora 15, so I cannot try any checks with umlauts in the Windows version.
