Both problems fixed in Qt 4.8 with these patches:

About "magic split" (i.e. different strings for "Undo %1" and QUndoView):
1. "\n" will be used as separator instead of "|-|".
2. Before using this new feature, translators will need to wait until
KDE SC (or other software you translate) depends on Qt 4.8 (which
hasn't been released yet, by the way).
