From problem reports and earlier discussions it seems that true
messages (error or informative) DO NOT scroll. It is intentional, and
when you see how fast some messages go through you understand why : no
time to start scrolling anyway!!.

I used a 1400 list and with my 5x7 font I had to guess more than read
what the messages were!!!

As explained above it should not. 8-)

No, all characters are correct. I have just looked at the daily change
log and I have the impression that Linus has tried something to fix the
bug and avoid Jukebox Players crashing with too-long strings. But he
said yesterday that he is pretty busy these days and he probably had no
time to post here.

There is no quick and dirty way to test other languages. It is Rockbox,
therefore it is quick and clean : simply copy the xxxxxx.lng files
(.lng, not .lang) that you want to try to the .rockbox directory of your
Jukebox (or to any other directory, actually, if you want to be just a
little dirty) and simply "play" them when you want to switch to other
