As I said: the externals show up in the commit dialog under the
following circumstances:
* externals are from the _same_ repository as your main project
* the external dirs are _directly_ under a versioned folder
   (e.g., "extfolder1 http://server.com/repo/extproject1" and *not*
"ext\extfolder1 http://server.com/repo/extproject1")
