[texworks] Tiny menu design flaw

Hi tw developers,

attached you'll find a PNG showing a little quirck in the layout of the 
window dropdown menu I found in TW 0.3 r.670.

There is seemingly too much empty space in the PDF viewer in the 
"Fenster/Zeige" menu if German is selected for the GUI.

If I switch over to English "Window/Show" is actually filled with 

When I now go back to German the correctly translated entries appear 
now there as well! 

On next restart of TW with German setting the menu will be empty again.

And eventually I see that the menu is seemingly empty, but still reacts to 
a mouseclick and e.g. shows the fonts window. As soon as you release the 
mouse the correct German text appear for that menu item. Looks like there 
is a bug in creating the menu item texts.

To make it complete: I set TW to English and restarted with this as 
default language setting. The I see THE SAME BEHAVIOUR for English.

So, it doesn't have anything to do with the translation, but is clearly 
connected with the menu creation.

Hope this helps to find the culprit.

Best regards,
