in a belated follow-up: I posted the above after all described editing,
LF conversions and unsuccessful update tests, but left the entries
file open in SciTE over the weekend (did the editing over the LAN
on my machine, the update tests on the concerned box however).
Well, Monday morning SciTE informed me about "entries" being
changed by someone else and reloaded it. What do you think? The
"incomplete" line was gone and those two files originally missing
were now included, just as you said. Asking the guy at that box he
said he had just made an update/commit cycle without problems
on Friday evening ... Dunno why the updates before had not
worked. Perhaps some sort of caching in SVN or W2K? Thanks
nevertheless for the help.
