Isn't this kind of empty space introduced by the glade tool automatically if
strings become too long ?

I don't think so. In this particular case the space and line breaks showed up
in gnucash.pot and the translations, but in all other cases it does not. I
think this is just a misformatting from the previous editor of this glade file
who didn't check the effects of this formatting on the translation strings, so
I fixed this at least for the future.

Regards,
Christian
