when you look closely, you see that the filenames that are kept and rejected
are identical (at least in case-insensitive mode :) Look at the file list of
the package. You'll very probably find that there is IPIBDataset.pas *and*
IPIBDataset.dcr in there.

Since the .pas includes a {$R *.DCR} directive the resource file is actually
linked twice. Simple solution: throw the .dcr out of the package & recompile!

(btw i'm using D5 pro + Upd 1, i just tried to simulate it but i can't manage
to put a .dcr into a package any more - but i know there is a way, or at least
in D4 there was... and it gave me a real headache back then until i found out
what's going on... :-)

hth,
