Too long header entries in vmstat
While translating to Swedish I encountered the msgid "read sectors" with a translation hint saying the translation has to be at most 10 characters. Now, "read sectors" is 12 characters, which made me a bit suspicious. I took a look in the code, (vmstat.c, the function diskpartition_header), and it turns out that the comment is correct. The printf format tries to format 10 character long messages. The same problem occurs for "requested writes" a few lines down.
Maybe you wish to adjust this so you follow your own instructions.
