You are right.   Someone else has already reported these issues.
Thanks for reporting them all the same.

I suppose we ought to make an intermediate release, and issue an new
pspp.pot file.

     Dear reader,
     I've encountered some problems while trying to translate .
     In the file are three strings with a percent sign that, in my opinion,
     should be interpreted as plain text. Now, I don't speak C, with or without
     plusses, but I've realized that constructions like %s are variables. It
     seems like "% o" and "% C" are interpreted as variables as well. In my
     translation, these turn into "% v" and "% b", which generates an error
     message in POEdit as well as from the translation robot: "'msgstr' is not a
     valid C format string, unlike 'msgid'". I think that there's something
     wrong in the original text and that these percent signs should be escaped,
     i.e., "%%". On my PC, POEdit shows the offending strings right at the
     beginning of the listing.
     Additionally, I've encountered the term "betwen" in one of the messages,
     which I think should be the word "between".
     If I'm right, I guess somebody at your side will correct these errors. I
     wonder what will happen afterwards, because I would hate to lose the
     translation work I already did on the file before I encountered the things
     mentioned above. That was a couple of hours worth of work, so I'd like to
     keep that, if possible.
     Regards, Jaap (Verhage, PSPP translator for the Dutch version).
