We have client reports that the l10n_client shows up in the dialog and destroys wysiwyg_imageupload.
Sure we told them to deactivate the l10n_client (at least temporary) to make the dialog work again. But they still consider this a system bug.
Same as you disable admin_menu in the dialog case - isn't it possible to deactivate the l10n_client?
