svn up might break translations

  Hi Frederik,
  I prefer make svn up before copy new translations and go on... Possible cross translations? See the local diff.

we currently have a problem with our workflow.

For some time now Lokalize formats even short strings as:

msgstr ""

Our server-side scripts then update the files to make them look like:

msgstr "Foo"

If now the translator wants to commit the changes a few days later, 
svn complains that we need to run "svn up" first.

SVN performs a merge then and creates messages like:

msgstr "Foo"

... resulting in strings like "FooFoo" in the GUI.

Has enyone else seen this?
