The empty files causes also problems when updating an installation with CVS.

I increased the severity of this bug, because it looks like it is causing more then enoyance. See discussion http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=26286 and http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=27084
When checking for missing strings, all missing files get created, but empty. This causes also an empty countries.php in language packs where it is missing. With an empty countries.php, you don't get a country menu when creating a new user or editing a profile. Since it is a required field, no user can be created using the interface

I'm fixing this now.
From Martin Dougiamas (martin at moodle.com) Friday, 15 July 2005, 12:02 AM:
Fixed in 1.5.2 and HEAD.
Files are no longer created empty (this was mostly a problem on WIndows only)
