Snaphot deletion status window

When you delete a snapshot, VB helpfully puts up a status window titled:

Machine: Deleting snapshot 'earlier':

Unfortunately the contents is:

Merging differencing image '{gah-internal-uid}'

Apart from the UID being fairly useless to the average user, it is also something that is not shown in the GUI itself, as the GUI only lists snapshot names. So the average user has no idea what the UID is, or what it relates to. The status window should use the snapshot name or some such.

For example, if the snapshot following is called 'later', then:

Merging into snapshot 'later'

and if there is no later snapshot, then:

Merging into current state
