Stefan, each developer has a subdirectory on a shared drive on the citrix server. The developers working copy is placed in his own subdirectory. This share including all subdirectories is replicated between the two citrix servers.

Schematically:

Citrix server A
- Shared drive E:
--- Subdirectory developer 1
----- Working copy developer 1
--- Subdirectory developer 2
----- Working copy developer 2

Citrix server B
- Shared drive E:
--- Subdirectory developer 1
----- Working copy developer 1
--- Subdirectory developer 2
----- Working copy developer 2

The problem is that the file is available in the working of developer 1 but not in the working copy of developer 2. The replicated working copies are identical. So I don't think this problem is related to replication.
