  Thanks for the note.  This is a known issue and there is little or nothing 
we can do about it at this time.  The issue, if you care, is this:

New_X is actually the name of an object in Kst, and is used for string 
comparisons to determine if it should be replaced.  Therefore it can't be 
translated.  However, it also has special meaning to the user, and in that 
sense it should be translated.  The best solution is to keep an internal and 
external (display-only) representation of these special cases, but we can't 
make this sort of change until after 1.0.0.  Sorry that it puts a bit of a 
"scar" on the translation effort, but it's the best we can do for now.
