No, it does not.

I tried solution 1: I deleted crome.rdf (there was only stuff about the 
languages in there). Then I had to reinstall the deat lang pack. The result was 
the same (bug).
XUL.mfasl is being deleted by Mozilla itself automatically, when switching the 

Solution 2 does not apply, because this is an english Mozilla version, which I 
am trying to switch to german.

The only installed extension seems to be mozex and this seems to be integrated 
in the RPM, because I cannot remember installling it.

Before 1.7, I was running 1.6 english with deat lang pack with no problems.

This is on Suse 9.0.

I tried solution 2 anyway, which did not help either. But then, Mozilla Mail 
was even corrupted in english language.
I had to delete crome.rdf again to make english work again.

Do you have any extension installed?

mozex is installed, but I do not know, if I installed it some time ago, or if 
it came with the Mozilla 1.7 RPM for Suse.

It must be some non-standard extension, as forwardAsBounce.label is not in
normal build. And that's why it's not in the langauge pack.

Hmm, how can I research this?

I checked again and found no extension in the profile directory. So, mozex (the
only extension that I can see) came with the Suse 9.0 RPM.

What now?

Well, that means that SuSE did some non-standard any wrongly working alterations
in their Mozilla and my German language pack simply does not work with an
incorrectly altered version.
As it _must_ be a wrongly done alteration and is no real bug in my language pack
(I can't and won't translate an officially non-existent string), this bug is
INVALID (or WONTFIX, but both mean that I can't and won't help much, sorry)

verifying "forwardAsBounce.label" is no official string
