thank you for the effort,
this seems to be installing, running and uninstalling correctly.

i think i seeing another cropping issue related to main window title on win7:
^ the above is an example using de_DE.

can be reproduced as follows:
- open subsurface
- file->close (if default file is open)
- import dives/ test0 & test1

result is dive #0 does not have the Dive text in the main window title
when selected.

on bg_BG i'm seeing cropping:
before #0 there is a portion from the end of the BG word for dive
"Гмуркане" -> only "ане".

this could be related to the buffer sizes in info.c:show_dive_info().
