 Any ideas on this one? I can't see the point of just removing all list
 defaults... is the fix to simple remove that line? Seems to work at a
 very quick glance, but my perl/intltool knowledge is very limited.

+It seems to me that <tag>[.....]</tag> notation was supposedly to add
+into intltool for specifying comments in the old days, so that
+translators would know what's going on (e.g. telling translators not
+to translate numbers into localized versions). Yet this usage is not
+widely known. Actually I haven't seen any schemas using it as comment...
+However, later it was decided widely to use [....] as a notation for
+list values, but the change is not adopted accordingly in intltool.
+The above was just my guess anyway. Kenneth may know the ins and outs
+of this problem.
