yep, the line numbers refer to errors in the generated file aptitude.xml not
to doc/po4a/po/es.po. I'm sure this is your problem.

I solved it by just searching for the corresponding text in the PO file and
my commit of your translation update contains this already. See the attached
patch for details.

It's obvious now, isn't it?

I think it is nevertheless possible that you get errors in strings you never
touched because of other changes. Consider e.g. a crossreference ("see
chapter <BLA>") where you forget to add the correct (untranslated) label
(id="...") in the corresponding chapter. Now you will probably get errors
everywhere where you refer to it.
