Description Carlos Garcia Campos 2014-08-26 04:35:28 PDT
This is breaking things like webkitContextMenuActionGetForContextMenuItem() for non English locales in the cases where we use the action title to guess the action, because the action title we get from the web process is translated while the one in the UI process is in English. We should initialize gettext also in the Ui process.

Not sure this comment has any relevant info. The explanation in the Changelog would be enough for me :)
