Re: [Subclipse-users] icon flicker

Hmm. Thanks for the tip however cleanup doesn't stop it. There is about
4000+ files in the project, I guess maybe it is an eclipse platform
issue, asking subclipse to redecorate unneccessarily, and the
redecoration just takes a long time because I am computing deep status
on such a large number of files.

Thanks anyway.

If I were to put in a feature/bug report somewhere to have someone check
why eclipse is requesting redecoration on files that haven't changed,
which project would that be best in, Eclipse Platform?
