Ok, a couple of sleepless hours later I think I have just pushed a
working version. This creates a staging directory for us under
packaging/windows/share and automagically copies all the needed .mo
files into it (the correctness of at least part of that theory was just
shown when I added Henrik's Spanish translation and everything just fell
into place after I recreated the installer).

The installer doesn't appear to include any spurious directories anymore
and uninstall seems to fully remove things. And Subsurface runs fully
localized in my German Windows installation.

I just put a new installer at 

(the new one is 8436551 bytes)

Can you test this and verify that what it installs a) works, b) is sane
(as far as content / directory layout is concerned) and c) completely
uninstalls for you?
