Bug#615981: net-tools: Wrong pt_BR translation breaks unrelated software

Package: net-tools
Version: 1.60-23
Severity: important


Trying to discover why I was having one problem only with pt_BR
(#467371) I saw that the pt_BR translation of "addr:%s" is the only one
that is broken: it adds an nonexistent space character.

It translates
"          %s addr:%s "
"          %s end.: %s "
while the correct is
"          %s end.:%s "

While softwares should use a more robust way to get the IP number (instead
parsing the ifconfing output), this translation problem should be fixed.

Thank you!

Best regards,
