Dealing with the Cancel/Stop/Clear buttons in FS->Status, I thought we
had to improve their labels:
* The clear stock button is wrong because it can be translated to
something more agressive than it is in English - in French, we get
something like "erase", which is not what the button does.
I changed it to "Clean", making it a custom button that will have to be
translated (hopefully more correctly).

* Cancel and Stop are not obvious at all: one aborts the
download/search/upload, the other aborts and removes it from the list;
they often get the very same icon from the theme. I'd better use
"Cancel" and "Delete", what do you think? The question then can be, what
do the temporary files become?

In the search results frame, we have Pause/Resume/Cancel/Close. Is there
any reason (usability or technical) to use different buttons for Pause
and Close? From the user POV, a paused search can be restarted, but
there's no need to abort it. I changed Cancel to Stop to better suit
Pause/Resume, but this has to be thought more carefully.

BTW, another point about gnunet-gtk: has somebody checked the new
connections count and tray icon I coded under Win32? I guess it may need
16x16px icons at least, but maybe it can resize our 22x22 ones - there
shouldn't be many problems since it is pure GTK+ code. Is gnunet-gtk
planned to be shipped for Windows, or will gnunet-qt replace it?
