That was the 1st thing I tried, but a newly created, empty directory  
does not do the trick (show up in the list, it wouldn't really work  
of course). Duplicating an existing version branch does work though,  
so in the future I'll create a copy just before populating a newly  
installed version branch.

Thanks again,
