There is a string in kdiff3's docbook that produces a fuzzy every day in the 
translations. I think it is something about $Date being expanded when various 
scripts are run. Maybe somebody can telle me what the problem is or even 
better correct kdiff3's docbook. The troublesome piece is the following:

Many version control systems support special keywords in the file. (e.g. 
\"$Date: 2006-04-23 10:37:50 -0400 (Sun, 23 Apr 2006) $\", \"$Header$\", 
\"$Author: scripty $\", \"$Log$\" etc.) During the check-in the version 
system (VCS) changes these lines. For instance \"$Date: 2006-04-21 17:24:21 
-0400 (Fri, 21 Apr 2006) $\" will turn into \"$Date: 2006-04-21 17:24:21 -0400 
(Fri, 21 Apr 2006) $\". Since this line will be different in every version of 
the file, it would require manual interaction during the merge.
