Bug Description

I have noticed that several menus of Gimp are not translated in French even if the translation is 100% completed.

For example :
- File > Create > Buttons > { Round Button... ; Simple Beveled Button... }
- Edition > Paste as > { New brush... ; New Pattern... }
- Selection > { Distort... ; Rounded Rectangle... }
- Image > Guides > { New Guide (per percent)... ; New Guide... ; New Guides from Selection ; Remove all Guides }
- Layer > Pile > Reverse Layer Order

I see this too.
I have downloaded this file:
and did
sudo msgfmt -o /usr/share/locale-langpack/hu/LC_MESSAGES/gimp20-script-fu.mo hu.po
This made the missing translations reappear.

For some reason newer pot files both in upstream damned-lies[1], both in Ubuntu [2] seem to contain only 61 strings instead of the former ~600.
I wonder if it has anything to do with this[3] change in intltool, since most of the strings in gimp-script-fu are coming from scheme files[4].

Assigning to intltool, let's see if Danilo can help :).
Maybe intltool regressed, maybe the new xgettext doesn't do its job?

affects: gimp (Ubuntu) → intltool

For now, I have uploaded a pot file generated with intltool 0.41, existing translations seem to be back: https://translations.launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/+source/gimp/+pots/gimp20-script-fu
