Origin: my report on msgid errors in the gnucash-2.2.1 PO file.

I think it's worth following this up.

Bruno, is this something that persists in the current gettext? If so,  
do we need to report it specifically to get it fixed?

I don't know what type of deficiency is involved: what extra

Thankyou for any help you can offer with this. :)
