[izpack-devel] Patch: InstallerGroupPanel reading description fromvariable not working

until jet I have not worked with the InstallerGroupPanel, therefore I do not know whether the
key name is not the right if the langpack do not contain a value for the key or not. If this
behavior is wrong, it should be fixed in the class InstallationGroupPanel; but please 
without the wrong comment. This behavior is written in the JavaDoc...
In principle it is a good idea to return the key symbol if the value not found. Julien has
made it some years ago to prevent the installation to fail with a null pointer exception.

Due to the fact, that LocalDatabase.getString(key) returns the key if no such value could be found,  the now patched line never get's a chance to read the textfrom the defined variable.
This is now working again.
