Thanks so much Armel, it did help inded. I have done some tests in
fidling with the header of the ,v file in order to make it behave just
like it was checked in on the trunk at ver 1.1 and branched together
with all the other files. After a couple of tries I managed to do it in
a test environment and now I am trying to do it on the 'real' server.
I've got 8 files in this situation. It's not something I would like to
do on a daily basis, that is for sure.
