Follow-up Comment #4, bug #16288 (project freeciv):

Hold on. For me at least, a freshly generated freeciv.pot starts like this:

#, fuzzy
msgid ""
msgstr ""
"Project-Id-Version: PACKAGE VERSIONn"
"Report-Msgid-Bugs-To: n"
"POT-Creation-Date: 2012-06-30 11:47+0100n"
"PO-Revision-Date: YEAR-MO-DA HO:MI+ZONEn"
"Last-Translator: FULL NAME <EMAIL@ADDRESS>n"
"Language-Team: LANGUAGE <>n"
"MIME-Version: 1.0n"
"Content-Type: text/plain; charset=CHARSETn"
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bitn"
"Plural-Forms: nplurals=INTEGER; plural=EXPRESSION;n"

That is, while the first line of msgstr is "", it's immediately followed by
continuation lines containing the header entries. So msgstr isn't actually

And indeed, the error messages in the original submission appear to be
referring to the content of those header entries (not shown in the report),
albeit using the line number of the start of the string. Aren't they in fact
just reminding the translator that they need to change the defaults that came
from freeciv.pot?

Is there actually a problem here?
