Description Robert Nickel 2003-03-31 00:49:52 UTC
Version:           CVS 3/30/2003 (using KDE KDE 3.1.1)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
Compiler:          gcc 3.2.2 Standard cvs build: make -f Makefile.cvs;./configure;make;make install
OS:          Linux

While working on Docbook DTD, there are 3 files with a colon (:) in the name.  When I created the project, and initially did the scan of the project directory, these three files were not added to the project.  On subsequent attempts to add these files via rmb menu in the project tree -> rescan project directory the files had been inserted into the project file but not displayed in the project tree view.

This is a completely cosmetic issue.  All functionality on these tag files exist except for having access to them through the project tree view RMB menu.

there is a reason for this: 
under windows, the colon ( : ) is needed to recognize drive letters like C: and so on. so some long 
time ago the core developers decided, that filenames are not allowed to contain colons any more, so 
that nobody can rely on colons in file names. so we won
