Exactly my point: if even committing an empty file is valid, what-the-hell
is the client sending to the server that causes it to write that invalid
change text? 'Cause it's definately the server that updates the repository,
and our server does not have 'real-time protection' turned on...... I find
it hard to believe too; there must be something strange at the server side

I will try this tonight, I'll make some script that will edit/commit all
night and see what happens..... With the infamous NAV running, of course..
