The former. The %s is a placeholder for "UTC", because the same function

template handles both Date.setUTCMinutes and Date.setMinutes.
Thank you for the rapid response and clarification. I would strongly encourage any localizer working on the Gnash PO file to use Virtaal and work on a downloaded PO file because (for reasons I don't pretend to understand), it seems that a great many obscure debugging strings are already present in Virtaal's translation memory (at least for Spanish, but I would assume for other langs as well), allowing many strings to be completed with just a few mouse clicks and some careful attention to detail as some are close, but not exact, matches.
Virtaal (from the fine folks who maintain the Translate Toolkit and Pootle)http://translate.sourceforge.net/wiki/virtaal/index
I'm making good progress on completing the Spanish L10n of Gnash in this manner and have seen that someone has started work on Arabic. When a PO is complete on our Pootle server, we'll file it upstream via your usual processes.

Thanks for your attention to detail!

You're welcome. I will keep an eye on the upstream POT file and refresh our template (and projects) when this bug has been corrected. Benjamin, if I could please trouble you to file that bug for me, I'm having trouble logging on to Savannah (too many accounts on to many repos),
