Summary0002942: XSTR indexes can cause string overflows in mods
DescriptionActually the problem isn't so much string overflows, it's different strings, period. See this thread for a full description of the problem:

A feature should be added to lcl_ext_localize so that it returns a special value if the "default language" localized string is a different size from the untranslated string. The mission listing code should check this flag and not add missions to the list whose titles differ in this way.
