We tried a number of variations on this. 
We were only able to repeat in in Icelandic.

error occured for...
both re0830.0 and re0906.0
both server (w/ X) and minimal installs.
Comment 5 Matt Wilson 2001-09-06 18:47:16 EDT
these are errors in the translation.  I've fixed them.
Comment 6 Richard Allen 2001-09-06 21:31:23 EDT
Mmmm ?  msgfmt -vv never did pick them up ?  What errors where they ?
I want to check my other translations for same errors.
