Thank you for notifing the error but for KDE4 it becomes:
i18np("1 minute", "%n minutes", number_of_minutes)
otheriwse it would always be "1 minute", as this string has no placeholder

I am not 100% sure but I suppose that this will not work either.
(And we do not have a I18N_NOOP for plurals.) :-(
