Let me tell you a bit of history. These filenames are actually
the strings that will be used in menu entries. Originally, some
of them ended in ellipses (okay, not unicode ellipses, but either 
MacRoman or Latin-1 ellipses, I can't remember). Then people 
complained. Then we changed them to "...". Now other people complain. 
It seems you can't win em all...
