Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

There is one string that can cause some problems to translators. The string is this one, locate in UpdateManager.py:

"%(count_str)s%(download_str)s"

This string will be "expanded" with two other strings previously defined. The problem is that the translators comment left before this string says that it is possible to invert the order of the strings shown. This can be a problem to translators since of the two strings that will form the final concatenated one, only the "count_str" (the first one) has the final white space. If translators don't know this, and they invert the order, the result would be a long string hard to comprehend.

I think it is safe to remove the ending white space from the "count_str" string, and add it to this one.

I'll attach this trivial patch.

Thanks.
