0001269: Boolean readout in viewer always "falsch"
In the German locale, "true" and "false" are translated to "wahr" and "falsch". This seems to cause the inability to change the value of a boolean readout (like "pen down") in the viewer: it snaps back to "falsch" as soon as you click the up/down arrow, or select "wahr" from the menu. However, when dragging this as an assignment to a script, the resulting boolean tile works fine, allowing you to choose between "wahr" and "falsch" as it is supposed to do.

This one is fixed in the Japanese image and thought it is in the squeakland image, but apparently not.

  By the way, I launched the Squeakland image, switched to German locale, paint a blob and open its viewer, but didn't see 'true' and 'false' gets translated.

So I can't test it for sure, but something along the line of the attached change should fix the problem.

yes the attached CS fixes the problem.

...However the CS provided should not be published to Squeakland in its current form, because it conflicts with subsequent changes to at least the following two methods:
   SoundTile >> initialize
   Playier >> chooseSlotTypeFor: these would need to be integrated before the CS gets published to Squeakland.

The proffered CS is pretty large -- 17 methods. Has anyone carefully checked that besides "fixing the problem" reported, it doesn't break anything else? If we're sanguine about this change-set, presumably it should be published this summer *before* SqueakFest.
