Thanks for that. That's something I have not yet checked for ;)
Will be stripped from the soon to come update.

This is a leftover from times where libdvdnav included it's own version of 
libdvdread which conflicted with the standalone version. This is not the case 
anymore, so no conflict.

According to the website 1.3.6 is still beta. However, the -beta was indeed

Actually, this line has no effect on 1.3.6 anymore, as there are no *.po files 
to copy (at least here). Chess, if you read this, can you have a look?
