To: kubuntu-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: amarok

Rosetta scripts screw up Amarok translation. For example, LP results of
.ui-files parsing loks like this:

      <widget class="QFrame" name="frame_info">
       <property name="frameShape">
       <property name="frameShadow">
       <layout class="QVBoxLayout" name="verticalLayout">
         <widget class="QLabel" name="label_Info">
          <property name="text">
           <string>Amarok expects the above database and user account
to already exist. This user also requires full access to the database.
You MUST restart Amarok after changing these settings.

          <property name="flat">
          <layout class="QVBoxLayout" name="verticalLayout">
            <widget class="QLabel" name="eqPreampValue">
             <property name="sizePolicy">
              <sizepolicy hsizetype="Minimum" vsizetype="Preferred">
             <property name="font">
             <property name="text">

There are no "messages" like this in original Amarok pot file from
upstream. "Translation" of this by LP Translation Teams can lead to
unpredictable results (crashes, freezes, et al.)
