I ran into a problem on Windows this morning with a segfault when creating the
language menu.  I added KiBitmap() where the images get added to the menu item
and it seems to have fixed the problem on CvPcb.  It's still in the process of
building so I'm not sure if there are other issues in any of the other apps.
I'm working on it and I'll keep you posted.

At the very least we should add his name to the list of artists in the about
dialog.  I can add it as part of my force image in menu item change which I
will commit as soon as I have the rest of the Windows issues resolved.

I don't think my commit will impact anything you are working on but I am more
than willing to wait.
