Hi ThomasG,

Some more feedback for you on this issue:

- calling the python script directly generates the .mo files correctly
(python i18n_win.py --lang fr)

- if I print out the current working dir in i18n_win.py before
msgfmt.make I get:


So I think the options in "make compile_messages -e TRANSLATIONI18N=fr"
is having trouble on Windows.
