977: Updating Modified Files window on project tree expand

Is it just my install or anybody else noticed "Updating Modified Files"
opening and closing very quickly on project tree expand. Basically all I can
se is a flickering as the window gets open and closed very quickly. The
large the nuber of packages/classess the more times the window gets
opened/closed

Yup. I see it too. It is kind of annoying. Are you using CVS too?

Yep, it's really quite annoying. I would have thought that the simple "Synchronizing files" status line would have been more than adequate.

If it takes more than a few seconds, the user might not notice the
little message in the status bar and wonder why the heck IDEA is taking
so long to come alive.

So, the dialog is good, but the dialog should not appear immediately,
but rather only if the operation takes longer than a few seconds. See
Swing's ProgressDialog for an example of what I mean.

Ciao,
Gordon

It's a bug and will be removed in the next build.

For me at least, I now have to click twice on nearly everything for it
to take. Seems like the click actives the control (eg, and editor tab)
but then the tab is made current. I must click a second time to get to
the desired edit tab.
