Yes I have tried the menus do work. I can setup a number of remote servers
with the Preferences menu. Then when I click on File/New/Servers it presents
the list of servers I setup. Selecting one attempts a connection. The menus
do work as advertised with local en.

What exactly do you mean the program doesn't work. Perhaps that is a different
issue to the locales in this bug report. It is true however that this app
isn't the most intuitive and the interface isn't very graceful in its usage.

While I don't want to start flapping severity between grave/ important I stand
by my original claim that whilst important locale support isn't RC. However
you have set it to grave so I will leave it to you to set as you see fit.
Of course if the application doesn't work as advertised, or there are better
alternatives then that is a different issue (and should be a different RC bug)
and I would support removal if the maintainer isn't able to address these
