If both are in the same package, then there is no problem as far as gettext is concerned.
But your hunch is right that this is a "code smell". Violates the OAOO principle.
It might be better to factor out the labeling into, say, a setLabels method, and call it from both places. Or (a bit more hacky) call your localeChanged method in the setup code as well.
Given that it's rather unlikely these labels ever change, I'm not overly concerned with them getting out of sync. Judge on your own ;)
Btw, in general I think it would have been okay if you just published to the main repo, and then voiced your concerns on the list. It does fix an immediate problem, doesn't have obviously bad side effects, so the system is better with it than without. Everybody sees the commit message and is expected to speak up if they perceive a problem. Like, the problem I saw was that this was not committed to the actual repository ;)
