* add column to locale.txt
* restart IC
* use UI to upload new locale file 

Should do the trick aswell ...

Depends on your expectations. If you expect that the admin will 
automatically handle new columns in your upload then yes it is not working 
according to your expectations. However it would be very scary if the admin 
would decided to start adding table columns just with an upload .. Imagine 
you were uploading the wrong file and in one go would destroy your database 
model ... 

Or do you mean something else?
