This one really has me stomped. It looks to me that we're using ngettext() toally correctly. So either a) we're not :-) or b) we need some initializing call for ngettext() to work.

Alternatively we simply give up and use another string that doesn't require ngettext(). Ie. a string that doesn't require plural forms.

(The ngettext() call in the trash is the only place in Unity we use ngettext()).
