This is from the clientside (-vvv)

make_file(3,home/Elev/99/eda0501/C++/Fyra I Rad - Utveckling av Layout)
make_file(3,home/Elev/99/eda0501/C++/Fyra I Rad - Utveckling av

so the next file should be TEMP.BAK however the client is about 250 files
of the server; atleast thats what the client output shows.
