Hello Glen,

I have done a trace when checking out the module and I've identified the 
file, it was not the file I thought it was. I have opened that file in 
the repository and it's all garbaged, no CVS header info. It was a 
compiled file that shouldn't have been in there. Question is how do I 
remove it, so that the checkout can carry on and I can clean up the 
repository, can I just delete it in the repository? If so then I can 
manually do this for each module until all non needed "corrupt" files 
get removed. Yes?
