Did you check out the catalog manager? did it work? That's were my problem is! 
I can open po files and translate them - that's not my problem.

If I update my .pot file, how do I merge these changes back into my german .po 
file? Thats what the catalog manager is for, isn't it?

Here are my version numbers:
KDE: 3.5.5
KBabel: 1.11.4
