Sorry. I still don't understand the behaviour. Now running lupdate-4.5
on your file again did work properly (but I don't understand why it
destroyed locations in the beginning).

Now it seems that lupdate without -locations switch doesn't modify
locations (if they are present, they are left, else they aren't

But I have no idea why it didn't generate locations in the first
place, but now it does and I know what to do next time. Thanks a lot
for all the hints.
