In PR#39971, there are quite a few messages of the form:

"... %s's %s%s...."

The %s%s turns out to use a function called get_location_str_at() or
get_location_str_in().  About 18 uses in 2.1.1.

" at %s"
" in %s"
" outside %s"
" near %s"

Those %s are city names.

This is hard to discern in English, and I expect it is a nightmare in
another language!  Can we always assume the prepositional phrase occurs
after a noun in every language?

I'm pretty sure the i18n guidelines say *no* sentence fragments.

This will be hard to fix, and certainly not in time for 2.1.2.
