files open in editor on focus lost!

There is this weird thing happening. My application.xml and some ejb-jar.xml files keep on opening when I go to an other application. It's also accompanied invariably by a pink tool-tip that tells me the file that was opened in the editor is read-only.

Has anybody seen this happen? Is it due to some plug-in maybe. I am not getting any dialog=based Exception or any in the command window.

I just found out that it stops happening if I checkout the file! It seems that IDEA wants to change id names in my application.xml file when ever IDEA loses focus.

what was this:

  MY_ACCOUNTING.jar
]]>

becomes this:

   MY_ACCOUNTING.jar
]]>


Is there any way around this issue? This is because i am trying to use IDEA along side IBM WSAD projects! Does IntelliJ really need to change these values? What does it only do it when focus gets lost?

IDEA tracks entries in application.xml by special IDs that map module entry in application.xml to IDEA J2EE module .
That is why IDEA tries to write down IDs when it saves application.xml file.

is it not possible for IDEA to use the id's that are already there. It's The only thing stopping me from comfortably using WSAD and IDEA together at the moment: WSAD for configuration and IDEA for editing and browsing. It's not as good as if there was a plug-in or real integration but better than using WSAD 100% of the time!
