I think this is a bug that recently cropped up, but wanted to know if
other people have seen this.
I think that the synchronize files feature would auto-synchronize only
files that are currently being edited OR files that would affect the psi
structure that IDEA depends on (e.g. class/java files).
I have noticed that since build 816 (or so) my application's log files
(which are in a directory under one of the project content paths) keep
being flagged as changed files when I switch back to IDEA.
I think the requirements for synchronization check should be:
- Does the file affect psi structure (is it Java, JSP, etc)
- Is it open in an editor or referenced in another window
(e.g. search results)
Has anyone else seen this and does it seem like a bug to you?
