Ehh, local/global versions of the file? The conflict is still expanded,
you might want to collapse the expanded tree with "cfs er" first.

Could you check from another client to see whether the object is a
dangling symlink on the server?

If the conflict was expanded due to an earlier (failed) repair session
that could be a reason for the repair error messages.

Maybe "removeinc object" would work.

In many cases flushobject is pretty evil to the venus internals. I hope
it failed here because it didn't want you to destroy a dirty object with
associated CML entries, and not because it already flushed the dirty
data on an earlier attempt.
