It seems so.
But, when submitting wrong  po files, it was supposed that Transifex
would merge it with the pot file from time to time, and exclude all
messages from the po files that don't exist in the pot file, right?

corrected.

This shows that msgmerge process is not running for this module.
A msgmerge with the .pot file helped me to solve this.
There was a 'c' character missing in msgid.

It seems its ok now.
Thanks Noriko-san, and thanks to Gladys Guerrero who translated this
module almost entirely.
