I figure the problem is that most Glade files still have the
translatable bit on for stock items.

> The configuration dialogs that have this problem:
> Accessibility
> Display
> Appearance
> Desktop
> Keyboard
> Settings Editor
> Session and Startup
> Mouse

Now this list is very helpful, thank you!

> Those who do not have this problem:
> Xfce 4 Settings Manager
> Preferred Applications
> Removable Drives and Media
> Workspaces
> Window Manager
> File Manager
> Panel
> Window Manager Tweaks
> Xfce 4 Calendar Settings
> Xfce 4 Printing System Settings

> LC_CTYPE="fr_CA.UTF-8"
> LC_TIME="fr_CA.UTF-8"
> LC_PAPER="fr_CA.UTF-8"
> LC_NAME="fr_CA.UTF-8"
> If I reconfigure my system to be in English with "dpkg-reconfigure
