Could you think of opening another forum topic called something like "Using CHDK with computer remote control"? I could possibly make some contributions there in the future, for now starting with a concise resume of what reyalp and I crafted out in this post.
So the fact that the camera does not name the "remoted" file, the camera file counter likely remains fixed.
That seems to agree with your CHDK operation description. Hence a pileup of RAW files with the same number on the SD card. CHDK does not overwrite a existing file with the same name, instead it adds it to the SD card folder.
One option a developer may consider is when CHDK detects RemoteCapture,
Over the next several days I will try your suggestion of PTP on another computer and might have some questions later, for I which I'd start a new thread. You seem very knowledgeable ... I noticed a C code snippet in a reply ... are you one of the developers?
So to answer your questions, the RAW file on the SD card does get overwritten correctly.
Your suggestion of adding a file counting scheme in the menu is good.
You could also create a special folder to handle RAWs when connected to RemoteCapture. That way the 110CANON folder and file counter should remain unaffected when going back normal portable operation when the camera is disconnected from the computer.
