Unexpected Externals behaviour in working copy

Hi

I have a question about externals. I tried the following scenario in my working copy:

1) Add an external definition to directory A, specifying subdirectory B
2) Commit directory A
3) Update directory A

I then see A/B populated

Then:

4) Edit external definition to directory A, specifying subdirectory C
5) Commit directory A
6) Update directory A

I then see A/C populated, but directory A/B remains in the wc.

If I checkout a new working copy, it shows A/C but not A/B, as expected.

So, in short, changing an external definition on a directory seems not to remove the previous external content from the committer's working copy.

I hope this makes sense. Please will someone explain?

Best regards

David
