Fix JLocale Chooser - to select GUI language

The JLocaleChooser is used to select and change current locale at run time.
The JLocaleChooser did not work under MS Windows platform or if directory containing i18n data was not found.

The JLocaleChooser has been modified to handle correctly URL (change file separator to '\') and only display current, if the i18n directory is not found.

There is still a bug with de_CH flag, which do not display.
In the future, only available locale will be displayed/selecteable.

Missing internationalization resource message now displays as debug

Missing internationalization resources (finishing as .label, .mnemonic, .tooltip) are not longer logged as error. These are logged as debug message, as they can be optional and can mislead the user.

Improved GUI visual presentation

The button size has been fixed (in previous version, some buttons were pretty big). Improved component organization.
