You're of course right, but since we're already planning the VPN, I don't 
really want to move the file off - and IMHO it would be quite some work, 
as we are using kdm ...

Sorry, but I didn't really get the point - what does "occupy" mean here? 
Or does it simply mean, that I sit in that directory - but if so, why 
should my whole directory be in conflict?

One primary problem is: How to find the object being in conflict? venus 
tells me some Fid - but how do I map it to some path name? Maybe 
"cfs getpath" would be the answer, but how to use it? Which part of

LocalInconsistentObj: objFid=5539d148.7f000002.1.1

maps to %x.%x.%x@<realm> ?
