This is happening because gettext.gettext() returns 'str' but e.g. Spanish translation is in utf-8.

to reproduce on en_US (latin1-compatible) installs - export LANG=es_ES.UTF-8 LANGUAGE=es_ES:en_US:en LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
and then launch ubuntuone-control-panel-qt

This bug was fixed in the package ubuntuone-control-panel - 2.99.5-0ubuntu1

ubuntuone-control-panel (2.99.5-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * New upstream release:
    - Control Panel shows quota in red with more accuracy depending on the
      free space (LP: #901314).
    - The Qt UI will make the file sync button inactive while a (re-) connection
      is in progress (LP: #878867).
    - Center the Qt UI main window when openning it (LP: #934173).
  * debian/control:
    - added a new binary package ubuntuone-control-panel-common providing
      common files and images for the frontend packages.
    - ubuntuone-control-panel-qt and ubuntuone-control-panel-gtk now depend on
    - bumping dependencies on ubuntu-sso-client to 2.99.5 and on
      ubuntuone-client to 2.99.4.
  * debian/patches/fix-937809-938626.patch:
    - Make gettext return unicode so we can format strings with unicode
      variables (LP: #937809).
    - No more strings coming up from the Designer ui files to ensure those get
      listed for translation (LP: #938626).
  * debian/ubuntuone-control-panel-common.install: new binary package listing
    files used by both the Qt and the GTK+ UIs.
  * debian/watch: updated milestone to 2.99.5.
