This sounds very familiar - Renzo Campagna had this problem a long
time ago when the Italian version first went in. As I recall, it was a
problem with the .po file - aha I found it - this also went to the list:

Hmm - using the internationalisation code has unconvered soemthing

Try opening the market window when using a .mo file.

There's an array of column titles in gtktheory:

  static char *aszTitles[] = {
    N_("Dead cube"),
    "" /* N_("Live cube") */,
    N_("Fully live")

and these are run through gettext() for display:

  for ( i = 0; i < 4; ++i )
    asz[ i ] = gettext( aszTitles[ i ] );

The translation of "" is the header from the .po file which is about
as far from a blank string as you can get.

Can you check the .po files for whichever language you are using - I
wonder if this has popped up again. 

It came up again later - the same problem with translating "" - see my
message to the mailing list
