[dash] See %1 more result inconsistency

Bug Description

If numerals are going to be used instead of words for more than 1 result in "See %1 more result(s)" than the numeral 1 should be used as well. It should be "See 1 more result". I think this is more consistent.

That would also make it more consistent with Unity.

May this line be changed to use plurals?

return u2d.tr("See %1 more results").arg(availableCount)

There are quite a few languages, where this does matter, see: http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/gettext.html#Plural-forms
The English original would use in this case the same string for the singular and plural case, but the affected languages would translate them differently.

Thanks for the suggestion Gabor. I did it and it will be in the next release in Ubuntu Oneiric on Friday.
