My apologies, It looks like i've misread the code, It's hard skimming code
where indentation isn't consistent.
The post type isn't being registered before init, it's being registered on

However, The post type structure,
being run on plugin inclusion basically.. It's creating the $labels
before the language files are loaded, so __(something, 'ADA') is returning
'something' since at that point in time, the translations functions havn't
been loaded..

 * PETPostType() is run at plugin inclusion time, this sets the labels and
attemptt to translate them (and fails);
 * Then on init, adafunc_setup() is called loading the translations.
 * And then, on init again, PETPostType::register() is called, registering
the post type, with the previously "untranslated" strings from step 1.

That combined with the priorities, should be able to get you on the right
line.. Make sense?
