Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200803111205)

I'm now seeing UI on option dialog for Ruby hints. It seems that these
hints under General category are different from others (Ruby and Java hints).

- Local variable assignment possibly intended to be accessing an attribute?
- Block variable aliases local variable - Unintentional side effect?

It's very longer than others and question. I'm not a specialist for
UI design but I think it would be better to use shorter message
and not to use question.

More descriptions can be put into the description area. So UI
should have only brief message.
