Hm, that's odd. I just checked the sources, the "wrap around" options
seems to have been in the sources for quite a while - they've certainly
been added before the latest binaries in the downloads section were
built. The string should be displayed next to the upper left checkbox in
the Find dialog (if the layout hasn't changed).

No, in case another application blocks access to the file it should
simply be reported as not readable, I think. Locking is a pdf feature
that is independent of that. Granted, I don't know a way of achieving
that with TeX, but then again there may be a way or such a way may be
provided in the future. Besides, some people seem to be using TW for
displaying other/any pdfs, in which case this message could be necessary.

Yeah, highlighting is independent. I'm not quite sure what "balacing"
does, either. I think there has been a brief discussion about it here on
the mailing list a while back, but I can't quite remember.

This is strange. We are talking about Linguist, right?

Did you try running lupdate to refresh the translation files? Maybe it
just doesn't find the dialogs and stuff it is supposed to display.
