You were right on both points:
 1) All these error messages have a trailing full stop in English, 
    French and Japanese.
 2) They also tend to be much more verbose than Wine's messages and 
    usually form a proper sentence.

I'm not going to fix point 2.

But I think point 1 can and should be fixed. The question is how to do 
it without spending a month in the process or fuzzying all the existing 
translations. It probably needs to be scripted somehow and then the 
patch for both winerror.mc and the po files submitted? (or just submit 
the patch for winerror.mc and the script?)
