	Sounds reasonable :-)

	And you re-built from clean ? [ bearing in mind that is itself built using the output from the compiled .src files
so to be entirely sure you'd want to build completely from clean. At
least, unless something new happened:

-// TODO: we need a mechanism to add images to, *without*
-// referring them in resource files. The below resources are never
-// at runtime, instead, the images in are accessed via
-// private:graphicrepository/* URLs.

	It's possible that some images can be included in some new way I
suppose, but unless you built from clean, I'd be nervous that this just
came from a stale .ilst files that are built from the .src files. cf.

	It's quite possibly / probable of course :-) but ... given the comment
in that removed .src file - I'd be extra careful - and chase all callers
of the method that builds those string file names etc.

	Thanks !
