And also wondering why it doesn't break the line between include and
COURVETTE.H but I guess it's because LaTeX thinks there would otherwise be
too much empty space in that particular line (too big space between
individual words).

I was sure that it would have made an estimated guess of how to hyphenate
that word, like it has done for me (in a wrong way) so many other times. I
remember that LaTeX doesn't know which words are english and which isn't
because it doesn't have such a big dictionary with english words, so I've
come to the explanation that the hyphenation pattern mechanism must have
been too confused to even make a qualified guess.... Is that correct?

Otherwise my guess would be that it has something to do with the
\textit{ }-statement, perhaps LaTeX handles hyphenation more strictly inside
the "{ }".

I'm also asking, since I can't remember ever before have had this problem
for the last couple of reports I've written....

That solves the problem, thanks. For a stupid reader perhaps though they
would think that the filename is wrong? Or perhaps not...

However, how can I make LaTeX break the line between include and
COURVETTE.H - *even though* there would be much white space. Just to see how
it looks.... And such a relaxed line breaking should only be for this
particular line - other lines should be handled with default line splitting
rules... Is that possible?
