Did they edit the .rc and resource.h files with a TEXT editor?

No? In that  case, I guess you shoud not consider  these files as text
file, even if they're stored as streams of ASCII characters.

You should treat  them as binary files, and avoid  editing them at the
same time than another developer.

One simple way  of avoiding this class of  problems with GUI elements,
is to create them programmatically, in C++ source, instead of with the
interface builder tools. Seems more work, but much less problems.
