Have you ever had a hundred or more units working only to accidentally cancel their assignments by mistakenly hitting the continent-wide or map-wide selection? Oh, the pain for re-making the hundreds of unit work assignments!

This patch places a confirmation prompt to guard against the unintentional disruptive selection.

- Should this depend on unit_selection_clears_orders option?

- hud_message_box* ask -> hud_message_box *ask

- The strings passed to hud_message_box::set_text_title() should be translated with (), not only collected for translation with N()

In S2_6 gui_options.unit_selection_clears_orders is unused. Still, this version deferes to this gui_option.

  • Sprint/Milestone set to 2.6.4

This introduces new translatable strings and S2_6 is already in string freeze for 2.6.3, so won't consider this before 2.6.3 has been released.
