LVCS has diffs but CheckinProjectPanel doesn't

I have a situation where LVCS is reporting changes in multiple files
in my project, but with:

myCheckinPanel =
AbstractVcsHelper.getInstance(myProject).createCheckinProjectPanel();

myCheckinPanel.hasDiffs() returns false.

This is in build 701.

How can this happen?

If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Neil

First: How is LVCS "reporting changes"? Blue tabs?

Also: I think the handling of changes files has improved in Aurora.

The tabs on the changed files were blue in the editor before I
exitted. After I restarted IDEA, the tabs weren't blue any more.

When I say LVCS is reporting changes what I mean is that if I right
click on the package in the project view & say
"Local VCS | Show History" it has a lot of changes there.

The LVCS history is not just the history since the last check-in. It is the history
of all changes over a period of time. So if everything is checked in already,
there is nothing to check in.

Erb, I appreciate the help you are giving here.

So is the filename being blue in the editor tabs & in the project view
the Only way LVCS indicates that it thinks that something needs to be
checked in?

So why did LVCS forget my changes after IDEA stopped & restarted?

Thanks,

Neil

Well, I have seen this happen, but cannot exactly say why. It should be rare.
I assume there were no crashes or external changes?
In my experience, it has been more common to see blue files that were NOT
changed, and when I exit and restart the situation is corrected.
