Do you have the PO Helper plugin[0] enabled?
Little Girl, you are partially right. If I remove that template, it
disappears from the header on save. It then looks like this:
"Last-Translator: Unknown <>\n"
But I don't recall ever filling that!
Mathew, yes. If I disable the option for auto-update (last checkbox on
the menu), Last-Translator wont get updated, but time wont either.
So, where does the "Unknown" comes from?
