I haven't actually run the test under GETTEXT_POISON, but I stongly
suspect it's the test, or more accurately the helper function
The test in question runs
test_i18ngrep ! "refusing to lose untracked file at" err
which fails in normal test runs, because 'grep' does find the
undesired string; that's the known breakage. Under GETTEXT_POISION,
however, 'test_i18ngrep' always succeeds because of this condition:
if test -n "$GETTEXT_POISON"
# pretend success
and then in turn the whole test succeeds.
