I found that msgfmt complains when it finds a msgid whose character
sequence is illegal for its po file charset .  For example, nautilus
1.0 has msgid _("\t\xB7 Problem : %s\n"), which is illegal for EUC-KR

I think it's gettext bug because the po file charset is for msgstr,
not for msgid.  But anyway non-ASCII msgid is not a good idea.  It
sometimes confuses editor, and it is invisible in some locale.

How about fixing all the msgid's which have any non-ASCII character?
