Saw the issue.

As you know Synch view is not really my area of the code, but I would guess
when the project is deleted nothing is capturing that event and removing it
from the synch view, or something along those lines. When new project is
added, you get all these change events where the local info has new values,
but the Synch view is still operating off a cache of the remote
information. Perhaps it could know this scenario and essentially re-run the

I have to confess that just talking about this I cannot even think of what
the "right" thing to do would be. I am guessing you do not want the
projects removed from the Synch view, and is re-running the Synch process
the right thing to do either?

Bigger question might be whether we have any contributors around any more to
look at this? Martin is the one who got the view really working well in its
current state. I think Brock knows a good deal about it too.
