Again, I'd already posted patches to fix this, but the patch tracker 
didn't notice to put them in the PRs:

One difference that I see between our patches -- you have:
+	      if (* descrip_extra == '\0')
+		descrip_extra = lang_names [i];
whereas mine just unconditionally assigns descrip_extra to 
lang_names[i].  Is there are reason you made this conditional?
