I've opted for the reverse fix. These messages don't report in telegram style a status of a toggle, the position of the cursor, or some other situation -- they are sentences that address the user. And especially since the first half of each of these ends with a period, it looks odd that the second half doesn't. So I have added periods to all of them.

Hey Chris,

This is totally 2.1.10 material, don't worry.

Hey Jordi,

Sorry for the delay here. I already submitted 2.1.9's strings to the TP so I could get it released today or tomorrow given how broken 2.1.8 was, but I'll apply this just after the release.

While translating new strings in 2.1.6, I noticed a few strings had a trailing full stop while most statusbar messages never have punctuation marks, barring exclamations in some of them.

The attached trivial patch harmonises the new "Internal error" messages.
