Hi Scott,

Thanks for fast response and clarification of " idp.ui.fallbackLanguages" parameter.

> I believe Spring would default to the "bare" message file. You should turn up logging there and see what it's doing I suspect, but I have certainly tested that much back during the original incorporation of the message code.

I also believe that Spring should fall back to the "bare" file, in other projects I use the same technology and the behavior is like that. Where can I turn the logging for this to "debug"? I tried the following:
	<variable name="idp.loglevel.spring" value="DEBUG" /> 
	<variable name="idp.loglevel.messages" value="DEBUG" />

The idp.home/system/messages/ is untouched. My own translations are in idp.home/messages/.
