As I mentioned, this is clearly caused by broken commit.

I have committed quick fix to SVN.  I will check more later.  THis is
error in msgfmt which is in getttext.

$ dpkg -S msgfmt
gettext: /usr/bin/msgfmt

Beside translator being careful, this funny infinite loop should be avoided by
gettext tool set.  This is msgfmt faital errors.

contains problematic strings?  It should only cause warning or error
gettext (0.17-6) unstable; urgency=low

   * Added libncurses5-dev, libxml2-dev, libglib2.0-dev and libcroco3-dev
     to Build-Depends, needed for the --color option of the various programs.
     Otherwise, an embedded version is used, which is forbidden by policy.
   * Standards-Version: 3.8.0.

As I see there has been no obvious change from lenny to fix any major issues.

Santiago, has you noticed any issues if source for po exit.  We do not want
infinit loop.
