Gnome-desktop-devel is definitely the wrong list to ask such a question
-- you should ask it in gnome-i18n instead. Anyway, here's the answer:

The handling of chinese byte sequence is different between gettext
<= 0.10.35 and >= 0.10.36. The copy of zh_TW.Big5.po and zh_CN.GB2312.po
distributed with gnome-core are checked against gettext 0.10.35,
which is considered as incompatible with the version of gettext you're

You're suggested to grab the corresponding translation files from CVS.
If you're unable/unwilling to do so, then perhaps it's better to wait
for another release of gnome-core.
