So I thought about this a bit.  If you think about it, the C
"translation" was wrong before.  It was always supposed to be singular
in English and wasn't.  I'm sure when some of the translators
translated it, they looked at the context it was being used and made
the word have the correct plurality in their translation.  I'm sure
some didn't.  The point is, the plurality of that word is orthogonal
to the other changes.  It probably needs to be fixed for some of the
translations, but that was true before Jon's commit and it's still
true now after.

I've done a follow up commit to fix thing up the underlines issue:

We (the maintainers of gdm) are sorry for the confusion and
inconvenience this caused, and will be more careful in the future.
