I have your problem still in mind and it is in queue, well, a long
one... But because I'm also working right now on translation support and
be therefore near your problem, I'll try to address it too.

You got me :) But Germán's problems were mostly Scribo related and
Scribo beta really isn't like Google beta yet. Not because a code
quality and stability but because of packaging and specially big lack of

Go with Aida 6.0 beta2. With just a slight doze of adventure in mind :)

Also, I can help you with the latest Aida, but much harder with 5.6,
because all my production and dev systems are already upgraded, so it
will take me a lot of time to diagnose problems in older versions.
