The repair tool has a flaky parser that isn't able to handle filenames
with spaces.

Netscape saved the file eventhough there were no differences, Coda isn't

"cfs purgeml" throws aways the log of all pending modifications.

Check /vice/spool/<uid>/xxx.{cml|tar} to check if there are changes that
might get lost.
