Using KBabel this doesnt happen, however, I think the issue is that that 
string contains tabs and by the looks of things Qt Linguist cant handle tabs. 
I think the problem is the formatting of the code in the C++ file, rather 
than an intended use of tabs in the string. If you dont have KBabel, please 
send the translation file and the translation for that string in a utf8 
encoded text file, eg as written by Kate, and I will put that in with KBabel.
