Especially when doing merge of branches where version numbers are stored there is always a conflict. Now when you want to do "Update/Get the clean copy" WinCVS always complains that the .#Backup-file can't be created because it exists.
I see 2 solutions for this:
1. When doing update an option to "automatically erase/overwrite .#-files"
2. An option to clear the .#-Files in the whole checkout
Of course these solutions could be combined
