web project references in SourceSafe

I have a web project created in Visual Studio 2005 that references several 3rd party dll's and dll's which I have created.  I am using Visual SourceSafe 8.0 for version control so other programmers can work on the same project.  The problem is that the dll's that I referenced when creating the project are not working for the other developers who try to get the project and run it on their machine.  Visual SourceSafe renames the dll's with name.dll.refresh.  Why?

I have had this problem ever since I started using VS.NET 2005.  I am using SS 6.0c, so I think that it is something to do with VS.NET 2005.  I have worked on many projects using VS.NET 2003 and never had this problem.

i think i found a solution.  when adding a reference to the project a name.dll.refresh file is created.  If you delete that file and check in the dll then source safe will accept the dll and not just the refresh file.

Actually, I found a solution as well.  If you just copy the dll into the bin directory, then go to vs.net 2k5 and include the file into your project, the refresh file is not created.
