The error message with msgid "Failed to pass %s entry to libalpm" (line 484 in en_GB.po) is missing a trailing newline.

When the error is triggered, pacman will print the error and exit, leaving the shell prompt at the end of the error message instead of on a new line.

There is no new line in the source code for that string.
