+Product: Mono/Compilers
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details:

+Summary: monoresgen misinterprets valid PO files
+Description of Problem: 
+The monoresgen utility does not ignore "fuzzy" markers. Such markers are 
+part of lines starting with #, in PO files, and mean: "This translation 
+needs to be reviewed and corrected by a translator." Messages marked 
+with "#, ... fuzzy ..." therefore must not be put into .resources files 
+in a way that GetString could access. 
+Steps to reproduce the problem: 
+Install mono-0.28. 
+Create de.po and hello.cs (attached). 
+$ monoresgen de.po hello.resources 
+Read in 2 resources from 'de.po' 
+Writing resource file...  Done. 
+$ mcs -resource:hello.resources hello.cs 
+$ mono hello.exe 
+Actual Results: 
+$ mono hello.exe 
+Hallo Welt! 
+Hallo Welt! 
+Expected Results: 
+$ mono hello.exe 
+Hallo Welt! 
+How often does this happen?  
+Additional Information: 
+The "fuzzy" marker is explained in the GNU gettext manual.
