Transifex uses intltool-update under the hood to produce the new file.
Maybe a version mismatch?

The developer can choose whether to use a static POT or intltool
(dynamically generated POT). In the case of setroubleshoot, the chosen
option is the latter. If the developer wants to produce the POT, we
(he) can just switch the i18n method to use a static POT file.

Hope this helps.
