Is anyone else experiencing this? With IntelliJ ramping up to a release I'd really like this fixed...
Frequently, when I check-in a file and the actual file status changes to read-only IDEA does not detect this. To get IDEA to detect this I either get the file out of source control read-only (changing the inode of the file.) Alternatively I sometimes use unix/cygwin's touch command to update the timestamp on the file. This has NEVER failed to get IDEA to reload the file.
However, workarounds aside this needs fixing; as Oleg Danilov says in fault 10624, this 'can easily result in unrecoverable loss of information or misrepresentation of the current state of the development environment'
