The text for one option has been rewritten (I think the one about
multiple instances); otherwise they are all the same.
I believe the main point was to reduce error, since it is hard to find
out what has changed when the string becomes fuzzy. But the other long
message has not yet been rewritten, and I think the other point was to
reduce inconsistency between the two long strings.
