Good point. When I put "%Id", my msgfmt accepted the file. However, I
believe the bug still is real, since GNOME CVS refuses my file:

877 translated messages, 2 untranslated messages.
*** ERROR MESSAGE FROM Gnome Translation Team ***
You are trying to commit an invalid .po file!
Please verify it first with msgfmt. Any problems
please contact <gnome-i18n gnome org>.

nn.po:1169: 'msgstr' is not a valid C format string, unlike 'msgid'
nn.po:1185: 'msgstr' is not a valid C format string, unlike 'msgid'
msgfmt: found 2 fatal errors
cvs server: Pre-commit check failed
cvs [server aborted]: correct above errors first!

I use gettext 0.14.5. I don't know what GNOME CVS uses.
