Comment(by johnjamesjacoby):

 Thanks for the heads up on that stuff. I've got a few better patches I can
 apply to more specific tickets now that there's been another trunk update.

 The work around for home.php is good too. Nice catch.

 I am really scratching my head at the xprofile fields and translating them
 however. I need a way to run those group and field names through the
 gettext to translate them for the set users language. The way I have
 outlined in this patch seems to work perfectly as long as those variables
 are in the theme's po/mo files and load_theme_textdomain('theme'); is
 called in functions.php.

 If I name the default name field "Display Name" and in my functions.php I
 have __('Display Name', 'theme_name'); then I can use a program like
 Poedit to snag "Display Name" and make a translation file out of it, which
 I can then translate to any language I choose and save and load like
 above. It works, really well.

 On the other hand, if there is no po/mo for the theme, then the gettext
 just returns the variable without any failure and it gets spit out as
 "Display Name" regardless of the chosen language.

 If this isn't correct, can you think of any other way to run the xprofile
 field names and group names through the __ or _e functions?
