So that's the way you say "Freudian slip" in Russian. Now I know something I never wondered about and will probably never have a chance to use in a translation. But then I'm the kind of guy who looks a word up in the dictionary and spends more time browsing through other definitions than reading the one I opened it for.icon_smile.gif

It's probably an occupational hazard of translators.
