@Alexander - I apologise, but really no offence was intended. I think it is
true that many/most developers use posix OS and that makes the MS Win users,
prepared to test, even more precious. The above was meant as a compliment.

Yes. Actually it was installed in a separate directory and a symbolic link
qbzr in .bazaar/plugins/ points to it. The bzr q<command> works fine in

Yes, I do, want to run some programs in several different languages, because I
ammultilingual and I have tried to help with some translations and would like
to continue to do so.
@Alexander - As you suggested,
LANG=ru bzr qlog <a directory with a branch> works fine.
Actually I am really interested to see Lithuanin translations in action. No
such luck, as there are no lt translation in the po directory of qbzr :)
However, there is a "lt" (Lithuanian) translation package, in bzr-explorer's
po files, but I was unable to invoke it. I also tried some widely used
languages, viz. French, German. Again I did not succeeed to run the bzr-
explorer in one of those languages.
In a few days time, I will ask Ian C. But let him first recover from his
illness. I believe it is all my own fault - missing language package or
something of that sort. Happy to note that the "qlog" works fine in de, fr,

Sorry about the above para. - I was just blundering about. I should return to
my own program writing where the problems are created solely by me (at least
Martin, I fail to understand how you find the time to answer such a volume of
mail - a big *thanks* to you!
Alexander - I do appreciate you going to the trouble to answer my questions.
