MOC output on "No relevant classes found"

This is a rather weird one, but I'm asking for your opinion on that...

When MOC processes a file without any "mocable" classes, it creates a zero-length output file. Unfortunately, if the target drive is on a NetWare? server, the timestamp of such a zero-length file is not updated (which is not MOC's fault). Anyway, as a result of that MAKE will re-invoke MOC for those classes - even though nothing has changed - and then cause the empty MOC result to be compiled. Due to this the target will be re-linked, which can be quiet time consuming.

A simple workaround for that problem is to always write something into the MOC result files. A carriage return would be sufficient, however I'm wondering why they don't put the standard "this is a MOC generated file blah blah" comment header in...

as this is not a specific problem of our port i close it. Eventually open a request at Nokia will not hurt.
