Description TAKAHASHI Motonobu 2003-09-07 07:59:54 UTC
d_printf() cannot handle messege strings including '\', for example
"this is a test.\n".
To fix this problem or to modify messege strings not to include '\' is required
to support SWAT i18n function.
Comment 1 TAKEDA yasuma (mail address dead) 2003-09-21 06:56:57 UTC
msgid "original message\n"
msgstr "Japanes message\n"

lang_ja.tdb includes '\' and 'n' in msgid and msgstr.
But d_printf(_("xxx\n")) search "xxx" and '0x0A' instead of '\' and 'n'.
Therefore it can't find correct message.

originally reported against one of the 3.0.0rc[1-4] releases.
Cleaning up non-production versions.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
