I have been using HEAD of the 1.4.x branch since the branch cut, but
such problems have never occurred in my environment.

This is a problem. ...However, aren't you using csh or tcsh here? If so,
you must set environmental variables with setenv, instead of export, like
"setenv LANG de". If you're using sh/bash/zsh, using export is a proper

Messages are correctly localized here. There is no problem, as you said

po files only work as follows:

  _("original message")

in the source code plus

  msgid "original message"
  msgstr "translated message"

in the po file returns

  translated message

as output message.

So, I'll suggest you to check whether you are correctly setting the
environmental variables.
