Bug Description

Binary package hint: checkbox

When loading checkbox, the first screen the user sees shows an image with the Ubuntu logo and the "Hardware database" text.

That particular text appears as a bitmap on the image and it is thus not translatable. Such text means nothing to non-English speakers.

Please consider either removing it or showing it in a way that it is translatable. Thanks!

It appears as if this isn't taking affect in the latest version of Checkbox in Oneiric.

Noting the merge date now and realising I should give it a chance :)
