Thank you for reporting this problem. A recent system update had broken
the tracker registration page. This should be fixed now.

Which exact version? (32 or 64-bit, python2 or python3, client-only
build? etc)
Can you give us the MD5 sum of the ZIP file you used?

That's odd, I've tested a few builds on a clean VM and I didn't see this
error. Is this an alert box? Which shortcut do you run?

This is not enabled by default and it is not meant to be used across
operating systems.
This is only useful at present when the client and server OS are
identical. (ie: Linux to Linux, or Windows to Windows)
When a translation is going to be needed, don't use raw mode.

Done. (please make sure to keep the list CCed)
