It's been many years since I used MFC and resource files, and this was
using Visual Source Safe. I do remember that there were big problems
with resource.h, and there was always lock-contention over it.

However, now I use SVN and sometimes CVS and it seems to me that the
GUIs have evolved to the point where it is quite practical to ask even
inexperienced developers to work in a non-lock situation and force them
to merge changes rather than just overwriting them. I haven't used the
Microsoft toolset recently, but would be surprised if they haven't kept
up with this trend. It's pretty standard now. I don't think I could
ever go back to a lock/unlock system.

If the problem is with automatically generated files, why not avoid
storing them in SVN and instead make their generation part of your build
process?
