Merge recent security update. (LP: #746694)

225. By Gunnar Hjalmarsson on 2011-03-03

[ backported Natty changes ] (LP: #719815)
* debian/patches/40_one_lang_option_per_translation.patch:
  - The option list in the language chooser changed so the items
    represent available translations instead of locales
    (LP: #693337).
  - setlocale() validation and other non-applicable tests removed.
  - Show locale variants in the list of language options
    (LP: #408474).
* debian/patches/36_language_environment_settings.patch:
  - Changes to Xsession's way to use GDM_LANG. It now sets LANGUAGE
    and LC_MESSAGES, which makes it possible to keep the user language
    for message translation apart from other locale settings
    (LP: #553162).
  - Use locale names with '.UTF-8' instead of '.utf8' when setting
    the LC_MESSAGES environment variable (LP: #666565).
* debian/patches/35_langlist_and_lsmess_dmrc_fields.patch:
  - Addition of the fields "Langlist" and "LCMess", which make ~/.dmrc
    and /var/cache/gdm/$USER/dmrc able to store the user language
    environment (LP: #553162).
