When a device mke2fs should work on already contains an ext? filesystem,
mke2fs prints a warning. In German translation the warning doesn't end
with a date string (which is terminated by a newline) and thus the
output comes out mangled like:

mke2fs 1.42.12 (29-Aug-2014)
/dev/disk/by-label/WD20_SL12 hat ein ext3-Dateisystem mit Namen
        zuletzt auf /WD20_SL12 auf Tue Jan 27 09:01:44 2015
 eingehängtTrotzdem fortfahren? (j,n)
^^^^^^^^^^^^^ here

Fix the translation to end the printed string with a newline and avoid
superfluous space at the beginning of the line.
