Hi Karl,

there is a long standing bug hanging around at
where the generated dir file is broken due to some .po files
being wrong. THe users confirmed that it is also present
int the latest prelrelease (Debian package)

There are many things discussed there, but these two items are
> * issue with tab character, reported at  comment #8, is fixed in texinfo.po 
> but
> not in mainstream it.po
> * both the files show the same "bug" regarding wrong control character (^_
> instead of \x1f see #3, #8 and following).

[..] and further explanation ...

> Looking at the source package from Debian experimental, a quick grep

> grep -c $'\x1f' po/*.po | grep ':1$'
> Excluding the de_AT and hu locales, which currently aren't translating

> po/it.po
> po/rw.po
> po/tr.po

Maybe this can be fixed at some stage ... thanks
