This can happen if upstream didn't introduce c-format flag right away.
Rosetta doesn't "recheck" all the translations once c-format flag is
added, which I filed as 

Also, Ubuntu team wants to fix problems that are unknown even to
upstreams (i.e. translations using "%"-formatting where strings are not
even marked as c-format).  Basically, this means fixing problems for all
upstream projects, and my suggestion would be for everybody involved to
file specific bugs so this can be fixed upstream as well.
