Although the error message is not too intuitive, I suppose it is an
intended behavior that msguniq treats the empty msgid specially.


  if (this->allow_duplicates && msgid[0] != '\0')
    /* Doesn't matter if this message ID has been seen before.  */
    mp = NULL;

(As you know, the empty msgid is kind of reserved for PO file headers.)
