Related to ticket #7564, in that the messages thrown are the same.

System: Macbook Pro, Lion OS, Django 1.4, Python 2.7.3, xgettext 0.18.1

Still seeing the error:

Error: errors happened while running xgettext on ./myproject/ warning: 'msgid' format string with unnamed arguments cannot be properly localized:

The translator cannot reorder the arguments. Please consider using a format string with named arguments, and a mapping instead of a tuple for the arguments.

This happens because xgettext will still throw a warning, which will be catch by the "if errors:" block in Inside the block, we will then raise an exception, regardless of whether or not this error is a fatal error or not. Suggest fix to at least look at the error level (info,warning, error, etc.) and only raise an exception if the error is fatal.

Agreed, we should only raise CommandError if the status code of the executed command is != 0. The _popen function should get and return p.returncode.
