I fixed this earlier today, so it'll go out with the next
liveusb-creator release.

So there are a couple of ways that we can improve this process.  At the
moment it's only me and Transifex committing changes, and I have been
slowly keeping up with SoaS releases, and spinning new Windows builds
whenever my Windows VM isn't hosed.

If anyone wants to step up and help keep the sugar spin up to date in
the liveusb/, we could use the help.  Ideally, we should
write code to dynamically determine the most recent stable/beta
releases, but for now it requires manual intervention. If you want to
help out, go ahead an apply for the liveusb-creatorgit group[0], and
drop a line to the liveusb-creator mailing list.

I don't mind pushing out new versions of the Windows liveusb-creator
when I can, but if anyone wants to be the Windows release engineer, it
would help things move faster.
