Description Christian Rose 2002-04-12 12:13:51 EDT
#: redhat-config-squid.gladestrings:342
msgid "\316\273\262\362"
msgstr ""

#: redhat-config-squid.gladestrings:339
msgid "\274\350\276\303"

This seems to be an octal hack(?) to get some fancy characters. This is broken
because msgid:s in a pot file should only contain ASCII (as an exception, if all
translations use UTF-8, the msgid can also contain UTF-8 characters).

This is because there can't be multiple encodings in the same po file, so any
fancy characters that are included in the msgids will be interpreted as
something encoded in the encoding of the rest of the po file, which may be
something entirely different than the original string, so lookups of this string
will almost always fail unless the translation happens to use the same character

It is fixed in CVS on i18n.redhat.com.
