Only to let you know, that we have found these two files in the override directory after biffing:

Both filenames have a very special character in it, which should normally not be used (& ^).

Greetings Leomar

Leomar is refering to this topic, and this and the next post where it's said:

The author of those files deserves a slow, painful death for using ... or special characters in file names. I will tighen my regexp to ensure only valid files will be biffed anyhow, thank you for your report.

So, it's not a huge unsurmountable obsicle, but it's still quite large, as it makes more work for others.

Welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand.
Here's how to install all the ... mods you ever really could want to Infinity Engine games. I removed the stable word from there as Roxanne began to add BS mods that are likely to break compatibility from the BWS.

The world will not explode with an extra 2 files in the override.

The caret and the ampersand have special meanings on Unix (which includes OSX), FWIW. (Then again, so does almost everything in some context or another.) Just a minor heads-up.
