Description esmithbss 2011-01-03 09:34:25 UTC
[ BUILD # : 201012150001 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.6.22 ]

I have a project and during a test I moved the folder while it was open in
NetBeans.  I switched back to NetBeans to see what damage had been done and the
project refreshed itself with a name of "???"

I immediately went back to the command line and copied the folder from its new
name to it's old name (I still need the renamed version).

When I went back to NetBeans, the project had not updated in the project or
file browser.  So I tried to close the invalid project and open the correct

When I looked at the projects available to me in the project open dialog, the
renamed project folder has the correct project name, but the version I copied
back from the renamed version has a project name of ???.

To reproduce:

1) Open a project in NetBeans
2) at the Command Line, rename the project folder.
3) Return to Netbeans and have the IDE refresh the project
4) At the command line, copy the renamed project folder back under it's original name.
5) Return to NetBeans, close the open (missing) project.
6) Attempt to open the copied project (look at dialog project names text box) to see ???)
