Tim, if you are a C++ guy, could you please try to fix #232625?
The problem is quite simple, but I am unable to fix it due to my poor
knowledge of C++, and I do not know whether upstream is working on it
(he did not reply to Christian at http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=896320&group_id=27043&atid=389153)
The problem is that "#:" and "#," lines have a special processing, but
not "#." which are inserted by xgettext when comments are found in
source files. As a result such comments are treated like translator
comments: they are editable, and written back as "# " which is pretty
annoying because xgettext will add them again. They should instead be
displayed as not-editable text, and of course not be changed when
writing PO files. If this cannot be easily done, a compromise would be
to only display source comments but not translator comments, IMO they
are more important.
