I'm sure the file really is modified. This is also backed up by the fact
that the file is listed when I try to commit the directory which holds
the file. The file is also accessible.

The problem again:
One file has modifications, but when we right click the file, it isn't
listed in the commit dialog. If we on the other hand try to right click
the directory which holds the file, it is listed.

We've tried to study this problem further, and have come up with a
couple of interesting observations.

First of all, let me try to describe our environment as detailed as

We're 4 developers (1,2,3,4), and we're all working on our own separate
working copy located on a network share (Windows 2000 server) i.e.

Local machines:
1,2,3) A Windows Vista machine, logged in as themselves on a domain
account without administrator rights on the network, but as local
administrators. They're all using Tortoise 1.6.2, but experienced the
problem during 1.6.1 as well.
4) A Windows XP machine, logged in as himself on his domain account, but
accesses the share as domain administrator. He's running Tortoise 1.6.1.

1,2,3 are the ones with the problem. 4 doesn't have the problem.

1 has tried to copy his working copy from the network share onto his
local machine, and was successful with committing single files.

We've also discovered a small workaround:
Instead of just right clicking a single file, we mark one additional
file (it doesn't matter whether or not the file has modifications), and
the file we want to commit, is listed in the commit dialog. This lets me
to believe that the problem occurs in some kind of comparing method when
only selecting one modified file.

On a final note: It seems to be not only when performing commits. We've
also had the problem when trying to revert single files.

I don't know if it's a bug in Tortoise only triggered by our unique
setup, or what it is, but I felt like I owed it to you to report a
detailed description of the problem.

Best regards
