[Bug localedata/4404] New: German translation of "Alarm clock" is misleading

glaubitz at physik dot fu-berlin.de
The german translation of the message "Alarm clock" if a SIGALARM is not
trapped reads "Der Wecker klingelt" is misleading. Actually the english
message is not helpful either. A better translation would be
"Alarmsignal" or the like.
