Refresh problems with Build#992

Intellij doesnot consistently refresh from the file system when used alongside with eclipse.

Here is the scenario.
I use intellij and Eclipse (don't ask me why? I have organisational constraints)on the same code base which is downloaded from a CVS repository.

Mostly I use Intellij to do the major Crux of the work on the file but use Eclipse for final formatting and checking in.

Sometimes after formatting the code using eclipse and saving to the file system, I continue the editing using Intellij.
At this point, intellij refuses to refresh from the file system. Even closing and opening the project doesnot refresh. I have to close and open the IDE all over to see the changes.

Some other pertinent Info.
I have both Eclipse and Intellij setup for CVS. So that they can operate independently.

the answer is obvious: it's a bug in Eclipse, it does not properly save files
to file system.

p.s. I'm just kidding, sorry! I don't know what the problem is, but could not
resist :)

At this point, intellij refuses to refresh from the file system. Even

closing and opening the project doesnot refresh. I have to close and open
the IDE all over to see the changes.

If you press "Synchronize" button in the main toolbar, will it help or not?

No. I've filed this bug already. Refresh does nothing. I have to quit
IDEA and go back in for IDEA to see the new directories I've created
outside the IDE.

This might be overkill, but perhaps the Synchronize button should force
a reload of all the files from disk.

Strange, the same happens with files safed by SmartCVS. How to safe file
properly from Java?

Still the same with build 996. If files are changed externally IDEA
needs to be shut down and restarted to discover the changes. It started
some builds ago and is a major problem since it allows silently
eliminating changes done by someone else (updating with an external CVS
client and then editing the file).

To answer some common further questions: neither removing the file
watcher DLLs nor using manual synchronization helps.

This is an intermittent problem. Sometimes intellij DOES refresh but mostly it doesnot.
This is adds to the uncertainity during development.

Synchronize button is no good.

Actually I just had a problem where a file would not refresh even if I
closed it and re-opened it. However, a manual synchronize does
refresh. It's true, I saw it happen in front of my eyes! ;)
