I guess we will want such strings translated eventually (without 
the semicolons ;-)  once the mentioned fix is done, but for now 
seems easiest to have gettext ignore these.  I have commited a fix
which does this (add C-style commenting around string, since gettext
is parsing these files as though C).  Thanks for pointing this out.
