Maybe build 1270 introduced IntelliCode which fixes bugs automatically
and commits them when you're asleep? :)

Oops - I meant 1200 - sorry :)

I assumed it wouldn't do that unless I put in *obj* or something in my
exclude pattern. Are wildcards not used on the exclude pattern then?

I had thought of that, but you can only ignore individual folders - you
can't specify any kind of mask using this method unless I'm mistaken. Eg
I couldn't say 'ignore all thumbs.db files and all obj directories in
everyone's working copies' could I?
