The UI string localization on Windows should use the UI Culture, not the Culture. This would respect users who want their country's locale for currency, etc but want their UI language in English.

Basically, gettext is using GetThreadLocale, when it should be using GetUserDefaultUILanguage.

Okay, I've added a patch to the build service that fixes this.  However, it only builds libintl-8.dll and in order to fix this we will also need to copy that file over intl.dll in our installers.
