Imagine you have a pot file with:
msgid "My string"

and:
msgid "My string"
msgid_plural "%d strings"

If you run msguniq on this file, you obtain:
#, fuzzy
msgid "My string"
msgstr ""
"#-#-#-#-# msguniq_bug.pot (PACKAGE VERSION) #-#-#-#-#\n"
"#-#-#-#-# msguniq_bug.pot (PACKAGE VERSION) #-#-#-#-#\n"

And the msgid_plural expression has disappeared. I know that "My string" might not be the best choice for a singular string, but I'm sure you can find better use cases where a single msgid can match with a msgid in a msgid/msgid_plural combination.
When the strings are in the same file, xgettext does correctly keep the msgid/msgid_plural expression.
