Overwrite the incorrect Polish translation with the correctly translated

The letter immediately following the "&" sets the preferred keyboard
accelerator.  Typically you would keep the accelerator in the same
location, excepting cases where the destination language is different
enough that keeping the accelerator in that same location would cause the
keyboard shortcut to either make no sense or be completely non-unique.

A friendly reminder to all translators: be sure to submit your changes for
merge as quickly as possible; if the GIT tree changes (no plans for this
for the next month or two) we won't be able to easily merge your updated
