I'm gradually getting there, partly thanks to your question about
grepping "tracked" in another thread. This patch does not really
generate random strings. It repeats the pattern "* gettext poison *"
for evey character that can be replaced. But a better way could be
replacing "tracked" with "t r a c k e d". We know the rule so we can
recreate the that string from "tracked" in test_i18n*. Or reverse the
upper/lower case, whichever is easier for the recreation by test_i18n*

It's an emacs hook gone bad.
