Clear List command remains in English

On 6.0alpha on macOS with Slovenian lang-pack (Slovenian is almost 100% localized as of this moment, not using the Pootle system) I can see an English string in the UI, that doesn't seem to appear in po files, which probably means it is not localizable.
It is in the drop-down list "Recent documents" in the grouped Librebar. Screenshot attached (with the command "Clear List" selected in English).
Comment 1 Martin Srebotnjak 2017-10-20 14:14:32 UTC
This happens in Writer, and the command is "Clear List".
Comment 2 Martin Srebotnjak 2017-10-20 14:18:37 UTC
The Notebook bar, not Librebar, sorry.
Comment 3 Martin Srebotnjak 2017-10-20 14:43:38 UTC
This is the command:
#. oPFZY
#: strings.hrc:43
msgid "~Reset"
msgstr "Pon~astavi"

Unless the shortcut key has changed from R to another letter (or string has in any other way changed) from October 18 (when I updated translation to pot templates of master) to October 20 (the day of the alpha build), this string is not displayed properly in its l10n form.

It appears OK localized in 5.4.x.
Comment 4 Martin Srebotnjak 2017-10-20 14:51:44 UTC
Same goes for this localized string, appearing in English: b2kUa
Comment 5 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2017-10-20 18:05:21 UTC
So 'Clear List' can be found in File > Recent Documents
Comment 6 Gabor Kelemen (allotropia) 2017-10-20 19:43:56 UTC
Confirmed with a current translations repository.
The string is translated in sl/framework/messages.po:

#: strings.hrc:36
msgid "Clear List"
msgstr "Počisti seznam"

yet it does not appear on the UI.
Neither do other strings from the same file, like the "Untitled" default file name.

This affects other languages as well and happens because translations are converted to fwk.mo files and due to a typo in framework/source/fwe/classes/fwkresid.cxx LO looks for them in fwe.mo files.
Comment 7 Martin Srebotnjak 2017-10-20 20:40:02 UTC
Hah, well, I will always quote this bug report to those asking why Slovenian team uses its own translation system, not Pootle - because we can point to errors before they hit the l10n teams!
