I'd love to have you or anyone try to make Subclipse better.
Unfortunately, the Synch view is probably not the place to start. One
of the reasons I am talking around this issue is that even if you file
a bug, I am not going to look at it. I can never make heads or tails
of how that view works because the Eclipse API is just so complicated
and involves so much cache. We have had some other committers that
come back for short periods that seem to grok this better and have
made most of the improvements over the years.

I am going based on my own observations using the view and what I see
in similar situations. I have not had situations where files go
missing, other than the known problem where toggling the view mode
seems to resolve it.

As for the cache issue, I was more answering the other points you had
made which I think are explained by the cache. The missing files I do
not have an explanation for. I just have not experienced that myself.
