Okay, magic word: curly apostrophes.  Unicode data.  In a non-u'' string.
i18n() doesn't even accept unicode objects, though.  Probably because the 
original accepts a char*, but that’s a UTF-8 encoded char*…

But then, I did try to remove the apostrophe (saying “Do not” instead) and 
modify the .mo file, and it had similarly no effect… or to escape it with 
\xE2\x80\x99, similarly no effect.
