This is bug https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8425.
The problem is that when I used those special .po plural form
translation definitions, I actually got more bug reports of wrong
translations, so I removed them all. This was due to most translators
not being able to understand and handle them correctly. I now hesitate
to use them again. Maybe I should split those strings in code and test
specifically for 1 or many; but that does not help with those languages
that have more than 2 forms. Hmm. I am open for suggestions.
