Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

In the Tools menu, rename "Hash for Duplicates" to "Find Duplicates" or "Check for Duplicates"

Although users with a computer science background should understand what a hash is, it's unintelligible to the average user. This menu item should be renamed to be clearly understood by all users.
