Ok. Then some more to the list:

Generic Ubuntu:
gutenprint (upstream at TP, LP translations will never be used as most of  
them break the package because of 80 char limit, the translation should be  
tested with internal script first)
all ISO packages (translations form LP will not be used)
all binutils packages (bfd, bintutils, gas, gold, gprof, ld, opcodes).  
Because of the bug (already fixed upstream, but not in Ubuntu) your  
translations will not be used.
grub (only translations from grub-debconf will be used, the rest LP  
translations will be ignored)

amarokcollectionscanner-qt (not imported from upstream for unknown reason,  
very long message, waste of time, because it is likely translated upstream)
skanlite (not imported upstream)
all Kubuntu docs (do not fit CD image, there is any will from authors to  
collaborate with translators (unfriendly package))
