We can always commit string changes to any branch until a string freeze
is implemented.  I'm going to add a new message dialog string to bug fix
I'm working on to the 5.1 branch in the next day or so.  I will probably
implement the string freeze either 6/14 or 6/16 so you still have time
to get string changes into the 5.1 branch.
