Well, considering the __DATE__ and __TIME__ macros that is not surprising.

I'd consider these intermediate files not worth versioning anyways. You say in
later mails that you want to distribute the files, but do you really need the
object files or would the final binaries (plus the debug databases for MSC)
be enough? In any case, I would consider not mixing those with the source
code because that makes it pretty hard to know if your working copy contains
changes or not. We use a completely separate repository to distribute
executable installations of a program internally. If you want to release, you
either manually copy them over or execute a batch script that does it for
