If there is a tab char inside a C string, syncronize translation files fails from that string so no more t_(" ") strings will be added to the .t file from that C string.

For example:

File demo.cpp

str = t_("First sentence"); // "First sentence" goes to .t file
str = "There is a tab ' ' here";
str = t_("Second sentence"); // "Second sentence" and the rest from here does not go to .t file

Not sure I quite understand this. Tab (I mean ASCII 9 byte, not \n escape) in string is AFAIK illegal in C/C++. Thus the file is ill-formed and it is only logicall that it is not parsed...

What am I missing?
