Hmm, in the po files I have in the CVS repository, that translation was already fuzzy.  Perhaps I did something to make it so after you submitted this bug report.

But I fixed the bug in the .c file.  Many thanks for your help.

The new option --show-limits to xargs is shown in xargs --help with one "[" too many.  Attached patch removes this, and also removes an excess space.  This is a trivial, tiny change, in my opinion -- no copyright assignment needed.

The patch also updates the Dutch translation, to prevent it from going fuzzy (that is, untranslated) in the next release.
