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.
