Yes, this is the bug that was investigated in December 2016 [1] and
subsequently fixed [2].

gettext contains two copies of test-lock.c, one from gnulib and
a another one that doesn't use gnulib.
The commit 480d374e596a0ee3fed168ab42cd84c313ad3c89 in gnulib fixed
the first one.
The commit 1afbcb06fded2a427b761dd1615b1e48e1e853cc in gettext fixed
the second one, in the same way.
