# Updating root external files results in an error message

Hi.

I'm using externals rather intensively in one of my projects. I thought
it would be nice to have a single trunk and serveral bundles that are
constructed using externals. And so for different flavors (editions) of
the project I import different files and folders from different parts of
the tree (different main configuration file and favicon for development
and release, different folder with default filesetc).

It all works fine except for the files that are in the root folder of my
bundles.

When I update "external" files I get several messages like:
External D:\checkout-root\index.php
External failed D:\checkout-root\index.php
Failure opening '/main/trunk/index.php/index.php'

My local path is: index.php
The URL is: ^/main/trunk/index.php

The update does fail, but commit and checkout works fine. Update also
doesn't work if I remove all root files -the files are restored, BUT to
previous version (to first checkout version to be more exact).

It's a 2 GB project. Re-checkout is not the most pleasant thing to do ;-).

Regards,
Nux/Maciej.
