      Thanks. I know some GUIs are replete with message dialogs where you
      have to read the text to know which button to press, but they stick out
      like a sore thumb in Gnome. As for the string break: looking at the
      pofiles, a guessed translation (from the existing "Save all", "Discard
      all") looks feasible in almost all cases; would it be acceptable for me
      to attempt that?

      Yes. Sorry for the confusion.
