Description _ tboudreau 2004-01-24 00:20:24 UTC
Open the New | Folder over some directory (in my case, 
"org/netbeans").  I meant to click Java Package and didn't 

Type "actions.impl" and click Finish.

A Properties file icon appears in explorer.  When you try to 
open it, an exception is thrown - it really did create a 
folder, but somehow the Properties DataLoader grabs it.  
Seems to happen for any folder name ending in ".impl".

Refiling on the Properties module - I can't reproduce this for any other file type, so 
presumably their loader simply doesn't check to see if it's looking at a file or a folder.  
Though I have no idea what ".impl" means to the Properties module.

One can reproduce the wrong behaviour both with .properties and .impl
files. The bug is in DataLoader for properties files.
