IDEA not detecting changes in classes that changed on disc with tla

I'm using IntelliJ IDEA 4.5.4 on Win XP Prof SP2.
My src is on a local drive and I'm using tla (arch) as a revision
control system. (tla used with cygwin).

When i take classes from my teammates via "tla replay --skip-present"
the changes are not detected from IDEA. Even when i press the
synchronize button the changes are not detected.
I have to close and restart IDEA to get the changes.
When i used the normal tla windows version (without cygwin) IDEA crashed
totally (closes without any comment).

Normally I have no problems when files are changed on disc (only via
tla). IDEA always detected them immediately.

crashed

The crash problem is related to the native FileWatcher, you can try to delete
IDEA_HOME\bin\FileWatcher*.dll files as a workaround.

If I delete FileWatcher.dll no changes are detected at all, or not ?
A crash is better in that case.
In the othercase i would have lost updates if i forget to shutdown IDEA.

Does File | Synchronize help?
