#28 More bugs & fixes to translation


Hello again.
First I forgot to say the last time that I admire you for keeping this project alive. Dev-C++ is the most used IDE by beginners and the people in my college :-P
Also, I found some bugs on the "Dev-Cpp RC9 Overwrite Update".
I prefer to put links here so it'll not pollute the message.

When pressing F5 (Debug): http://pastebin.com/dWUzcxUC

Compiler Options -> some options like (Code Generation)
Also when closing form: http://pastebin.com/MpCp4VJE

Pressing Ctrl+, without selecting any previous line: http://pastebin.com/JXLMdDC0

There are extra spacings in English.lng
20001=New Variable Watch
29002=Select the file to remove from the project :

Also, I updated the Portuguese.lng with some fixes (it's not 100% perfect though)

I don't know if that is a bug but my cursor bar thingy was stuck at the line display row. Restarting fix, so I'm almost sure it's not some config stuff.

Tried with your "Dev-Cpp 20-9-2012.7z" from issue #26, did not work.

I noticed that FastMM4 was updated to 4.991 (3rd sept.); I don't have any programming skills with Pascal so, I don't know if the update is useful, but just pointing out...
And just a thought: if you know anything about design, would the images have any loss if converted to png or even jpg in order to reduce size (bmp is roomy).

    All reported problems up to and including the extra spaces should be fixed now. I'll pack a zip file for you.

    However, I've got absolutely no clue why the caret decided to show up there.

    Great. The problem with Debug and Compiler Options were fixed.
    However the Ctrl+, problem still buggy.

    Ctrl+, : http://pastebin.com/JjHG1Nuw

    And I found three other bugs:
    Go to Project Options, change anything, from Icon to compiler flags, and hit Ok.
    This first link is when I change the program icon: http://pastebin.com/5dX6KfCy
    This is when I change something like the project name: http://pastebin.com/4pEpPigF

    The last is not a bug, but something from the syntax highlight. I attached a screenshot, should be enough to explain the issue.

    I was going to close Dev-C++ and got this: http://pastebin.com/y8hJ97ac

    Can you send me a project file which produces these problems?

    And what did you do exactly that casues uncommenting to fail?

    Wierdly I can't reproduce any of the problems today, I have no idea why.
    I feel awful for not being able to reproduce anymore, but it is great that you could fix it.

    Trying to reproduce the other bugs, I found another thing, I record a video so it's easy for you to see what's the problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9Z1wCqY3ng
    And here is the stack trace from the video: http://pastebin.com/w9x8MSiA

    The bug from the YouTube video has been fixed as of Dev-C++ 5.3. Thanks for reporting.
