NVDA does not read the whole content of the "Confirm deletion" dialog for shortcuts for applications on the desktop (maybe even in other places as well) under Windows 7.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Load NVDA (I'm using main snapshot #5012, but it happens with 2011.3 as well).
2. Go to the desktop.
3. Find a shortcut for an installed application (even the one for an installed copy of NVDA should do it).
4. Press the "Delete" key to invoke the "Delete" command for the selected element (the shortcut in our case).
5. The "Confirm deletion" dialog appears. NVDA should read its whole content, but it skips the upper part where Windows informs us that the deletion of the shortcut will not remove the correspondent application from our system, but only the shortcut itself.

This is tested with NVDA 2011.3 and main snapshot #5012 under Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit with bulgarian localization and regional and language settings set to bulgarian.

Same here, this time with English interface.
When deleting shortcuts NVDA says (copied from the speech viewer):
Delete Shortcut dialog Programs and Features NVDA Shortcut Ctrl+Alt+N
Yes button Alt+y
