Exactly. Did some further tests checking out the rev. the two files
were entered, then switching to the rev. before, and everything was

You are right, Ben, and thanks for pointing me to this. Those two
files are missing indeed. But that's a Unix hack, isn't it? Thus nix
for Windows? <g> Opened the file in SciTE and added the line,
(and saved), but update gave me the error "file not found;
transaction 9q: path (to the first one of the entries file). Then
remembered the recent editing dumpfile discussion and set SciTE
to UTF-8 encoding and changed line endings to both CR and LF,
but the result was negative as before. Suppose the entries file is
finally down the river by now. Isn't there something like a --force
switch to update to do this instead of editing a file Windows should
leave alone under any circumstances?
