cmdlgtst: Fix ellipsis usage in the menu and button labels.

Whether the 'Commdlg' menu entries should have ellipses is arguable:
 * One could argue that in this test application the goal of a menu like 
   'Open' is not to open a file, but to show the standard open dialog. 
   Thus no additional information is needed before the menu performs its 
   function and thus it should not have an ellipsis.
 * However this is really the exception and one that's only for 
   testing at that. So I'm not sure it's worth to bother having a 
   different menu entry from eveywhere else. The subtlety may be lost on 
   all who look at it thus introducing the risk of bugs via copy/paste, 
   adds more work for translators. One could also argue that this 
   application should also be a showcase for how things should be in a 
   real application which means it should have an ellipsis.

So I added the ellipses.
