I just wanted to mention that I see similar behavior with JavaHL: in
some subfolder, there are some files that are created by SWIG. I have
marked them as derived, and Subclipse ignores them, as expected.
However, in the same folder reached via the symbolic link, they are
still marked with question marks. Marking them as derived there doesn’t
help either.
