Is it really useful to translate the window title?

IMO we should either translate both filenames and window titles,
or none of them. But I think translation will be expected.

Most apps and preferences are likely already set up with B_TRANSLATE()
for the window title.

Doesn't this create problems with scripting?

I assume it does, since there is no internal name, separate from the
window title.

Which is the real problem and should be fixed instead of reverting the window title localization. Name should not have equalled window title in the first place. It should be a bit painful to get this fixed properly, but I have not looked at the problem more deeply.

Best regards,
