Oops, alecu, please ping me next time you take a bug from me (which you're more than welcome to do at any time! ;)

I finished this another version of this on my own branch. And yes I know I reviewed this branch, but I did not pay overly much attention to the i18n changes apparently.

Single/plural is a very complicated i18n issue which is why gettext provides ngettext and dngettext, the latter of which we should use here, IMO, as my new branch does.

Hi eric, thanks for your branch to fix this!
btw: Just after nessita told you about this bug on irc I mentioned that it was already fixed in trunk, so she told me to link this branch and mark the bug as fixed. My solution was ugly though, since it just changed the "1 files" into "1 file(s)", so I must agree that your fix using proper gettext looks a lot nicer and it will surely work for languages with more than one plural form.
