patch to change tooltips for terminal emulator and help system

I have been looking through Sun's Usability report for things I could
work on.  Found a few quick ones:

This patch changes the tooltips for the gnome-terminal and
gnome-help-browser icons per the design recommendations in the

"Terminal Emulation Program" -> "Command Prompt"

"Integrated Help Sytem (Info, man, HTML)" -> "Gnome User Guide"

I thought I'd post it here rather than committing, since this breaks
translation, this is my first patch to gnome-core, and obviously these
are up for discussion--not everyone will necessarily agree with these

Comments, permission to commit, etc.?

If the designers of X-Windows built cars, there would be no fewer than
five steering wheels hidden about the cockpit, none of which followed
the same principles -- but you'd be able to shift gears with your car
stereo. Useful feature, that.
