Project exclude paths -- mangled on relaunch

I have several exclude paths in my project that look like

src/edu/umass/cs/mallet/users/casutton

When I first enter these directories, they successfully exclude the source files in that directory. After I quit IntelliJ and restart it, then I notice that the exclude path is changed to

src/edu/umass/cs/mallet/Users/casutton

with a capital U. The output directory is highlighted in red, as if it does not exist, and files from the directory are not excluded from the project when I compile. This confuses me, because I am using Mac OS X, and I did not think file names are case-sensitive.

Has anyone seen anything like this? I am using Build 3542 on Mac OS X 10.4.3.

Thanks,
Charles

Hello Charles,

MacOS X path are case sensitive. It's just we seem to have a bug in IDEA
to forget about at one place, namely .../users/%username%/... substring in
the path erroneously matched your home directory, which is /Users/%username%.

Would you please submit a JIRA issue for this so we make sure to fix the
problem before 5.1 ships?
