Piotr's explanation is correct; and there are similar examples of 
unmatched strings scattered through many docs.

The solution is to refresh the POT and PO files of these docs using 
Publican 1.6.3 (currently released version) or 1.99 (same codebase as 
1.6.3 but with the web publishing components included). We would not 
have made these changes at this time, except that 1.6.2 had some severe 
translation problems of its own. This process is certain to create many 
fuzzies, and probably break a few strings entirely. Running this process 
prior to GA when many teams were still working would have been far too 

Now that we're past GA, I'm happy to run this so that teams can 
eliminate these problems. I could either:

* refresh docs individually, as soon as any language team requests it

* just refresh any doc where there has been no translation activity 
after GA

Which would you guys prefer?
