Bug Description

The following is not processed correctly by intltool:

_DisplayName = YouTube
_Description = Search YouTube for videos and browse channels

.ini files ignore leading spaces surrounding the equal sign, but intltool does not generate correct translations if they are present.

In more detail: intltool-update extras the strings to the POT file even with the space. (It includes the space in the msgid, though.) intltool-merge fails to include any translations, and it doesn't even remove the leading underscore.
