really weird file-linereading problem

Dear all,

sorry, i know this code is far little too long to debug here, but there is
really annoying logical error. If someone debugs this, I really offer warm
virtual handshake.

What this code SHOULD do:
- read new (=updated) licensetext from file $license_path
- read and modify recursively all files from $current_dir, replacing old
licensetexts and licenseplacehol der text EITHER with new licentext OR with
licenseplacehol der

In other words, this is meant to make the updating of license text easy,
because you can put text like
to your files and make the replace operation with 1 command for all files.

- one extra linefeed seems to appear after last line in some operations. I
have tried to handle this, but still it comes.
- really weird: the code should (for debugging purpose) print the lines of
ORIGINAL file before the operation, yet it seems to print the lines of the
rewritten file. This is really really weird...'

Thanks very mych if you can help!!

I am very new to Python, but have done plenty of development in C++ and Java. One thing I find weird about python is the idea of a module.
