Description mclaborn 2015-11-11 21:27:50 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 8.1 (Build 201510222201)
Operating System = Linux version 3.13.0-68-generic running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0_51
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.51-b03

Reproducibility: Happens sometimes, but not always

See attached screen shots. After working in a Javacript file for a while, sometimes the hint icons start showing on the wrong line. Closing and re-opening the file clears the problem. 
(I think I saw this an a JSP file earlier, but I was in a hurry and didn't capture any information.

May be related to 256154?
Comment 5 Petr Pisl 2016-08-15 11:39:10 UTC
 I'm not sure, but I did some fixes in the hint positions. I can not reproduce it now in dev build? Could you attach a file, where we can reproduce this?

I'm closing this as fixed, but please reopen if you have still reproducible case. Thanks.

Quick tests in 201608150002 cannot reproduce.  Will keep my eye on it.
Comment 7 Petr Pisl 2016-08-16 11:50:34 UTC
If you run in it and if you can, please attach the file, where it can be reproduce it and reopen the bug. Thanks.

I'm fairly certain that 256526, 257103 and 267242 all have the same root cause. There is some action I do regularly that messes up some internal table of line numbers in the Java source file with what is actually present in the editor. (My hypothesis.) Once in this state, Fix Imports, refactoring and error/hint icons are all messed up.  Closing the file and reopening it usually fixes the problem. 

How can I go about capturing what is needed to catch this?
