(bad to see with variable width fonts)

Basically this is an issue with translations destroying the tabular output.

This can be fixed in two ways, either fix all the translation strings, or make free truncate the output (even truncated labels should be useable for something like free, but then as a long time user I probably don't need labels, but without the column alignment the data is hard to read).
