Re: [Subclipse-users] subclipse reverts on undo

I do not believe we have any code that does this specifically. If you
do an undo, and the Eclipse undo moves files, then yes Eclipse is
going to send that through as move events. There is no way to my
knowledge to know it any differently.

Subclipse responds to events sent to us by Eclipse. We do not have a
hook for Undo (I do not think one even exists). But if the Eclipse
undo moves files around, etc. then it just looks like that is what you
did to us.

If you disagree, I think you should simplify your problem description
and perhaps include a specific but concise reproduction recipe.

Thanks

Mark
