Description Mikhail Matveev 2008-10-23 16:28:33 UTC
1. Create a project with source outside of Apache directory and set "Copy Files from Source Folder" flag on.
2. Add several files to the project.
3. Modify files in the clone directory externally.
4. Modify corresponding files in the IDE and save changes.
Result: changes done at step 3 are silently overwritten.

Maybe it's proper behavior, but maybe it would be nice to show a warning dialog to user. Please decide.
For comparison: when _original_ file is externally modified, changes are loaded into the editor immediately.

This behaviour is intentional; changing TM to future to keep it as a reminder but no changes are planned in the 
current behaviour as far as I know.
