Ah, at least one person who reads my mails :-)

I forgot to add the following languages as being present in both locations:
     ca-XV en-GB en-ZA pt-BR zh-CN zh-TW

pootle server (with a '_' (underline) in the middle) and in l10n/ (with 
a '-' (dash)).  I sorted them differently and then forgot about them. Sorry.
