I think I found a cause for the "#~" comments (in local files). Note that this is only an explaination of what might cause them to be inserted into files by gettext tools, not a reason they are showing up on Rosetta.

One cause seems to be if msgid strings are removed. In my local files I have just removed one translated string. When I ran the gettext tools to update the .po files, I find that the removed string (along with the translation) is now commented out at the bottom of the file, eg:

#~ msgid "MAC comparison failure in block %lli"
#~ msgstr "Échec de comparaison MAC dans le bloc %lli"

However, this does not explain yet why they are appearing in Rosetta, when no translatable have been neither added nor removed..
