Description Jiri Prox 2008-06-25 13:48:44 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 080625)
Java: 1.6.0_10-beta; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 11.0-b12
System: Linux version 2.6.22-15-generic running on i386; UTF-8; en_US (nb)

When displaying call hierarchy (hierarchy of callers) for method which overrides/implements method from the superclass
the root of hierarchy is actually the method for superclass - this should be announced in the result tree somehow.
Otherwise the result can be confusing. 
Even better would be to possibility to control this behavior since I'd say that both cases are useful
