Changing the language seems to garble the menu title.

- Change from English (my default) to French language in the general settings menu.
- "General Settings" now says "%s".

Changing back to English right away (without leaving the directory) returns it back to normal immediately, but if you go to another menu and _then_ return and change the language back to English, the menu title will be garbled again, this time displaying "op/Pause".

Minor, I know.

This task depends upon

This issue have been present for a very long time, probably since the inclusion of menu titles. I remember I looked into it and the menu isn't updated correctly so IIRC it uses the pointer to the lang string from the old lang file to display the title, which of course doesn't work.
