I'm running Lion in French and have had the following bug in my Dock for the last couple of weeks. It doesn't go away if I reboot or kill the Dock.

Have you ever seen something like that before?

My Dock's going crazy!

What have you done to get this problem? – Michiel Mar 20 '12 at 15:14
To the best of my knowledge, nothing at all. – julien_c Mar 20 '12 at 15:33
Oh, those problems are the best of all :) – Michiel Mar 20 '12 at 15:36

You could find the strings file (which holds the translations) and do a search and replace on nonstandard characters.

That sounds hackish :) – julien_c Mar 20 '12 at 13:57
It's only a little hackish. You're better of doing that than messing with finder. – Moshe Mar 20 '12 at 13:59
