Crash on startup (win32)

Bug Description

I'm using win xp sp2, and since 0.41 I get some module
missing error, and the program quits. As I can see from
the backtrace below, this might be a locale error? I'm
using hungarian local settings (as I am from Hungary :) )

This is the backtrace:

Maybe this helps:

I've tried to install the last working (0.40) version, and
after some copying I've find out that only the new
localisation file causes the problem. The latest program
version works with the old localization file, but misses
some import modules.

Regards, and keep up the good work!

Now I created an account, maybe you give more attention to
this. If you checked this either, then sorry. I think it is
a minor bug in the code, but may help to a lot, whose not
using english locales. thx.

Ted, as this crashes in the extensions code, could you
please have a look.

The file where this error occurs (extension.cpp) has had several
changes since this bug was reported.

tmtke, can you please doublecheck that this bug is still present in the
current CVS version of Inkscape?

Okay, I haven't recreated this one, but looking at the code
I think there is only one way to make this happen -- and
that is having a bad type in the inx file. I've changed the
behavior to default to "file" in the case of the type being
unknown. This should remove any 'translation' of an
undefined string. So, I'm marking it as fixed in CVS.

Ok, I checked it. Crash not happens for a while (I'm
frequently downloading and trying out newer builds), but
extensions are still remaining disabled or unloaded. Is
there an other bug for this?
