"Select filename", Whack-a-mole
« on: July 29, 2016, 06:41:29 pm »

[size=78%]If I happen to let the cursor set to long on a "#include" line, I often get this annoying popup.[/size]
[/size][size=78%]This can happen during a mini-find search if you pause too long before pressing F3[/size]
It is very persistent too.

Repro case 1:
   1 Place cursor on include.
   2 Wait a beat, get the popup.
   3 Cancel.
   4 Switch away from Slick to here and write a rambling complaint.
   5 In the background I see that slick again popped up with this dialog.
I didn't move the cursor or anything.
Sometimes this even makes Slick pop to front.
Please stop pestering me!

In this case the includes are
    #include <inc1/a.h>
    #include <inc2/a.h>

a.h exists in both places.
If I leave my cursor on either line here, Slick will ask be to pick inc1\a.h or inc2\a.h.
Seems obvious to me :-)

Also, why does slick care soooo much?

Case 2:
   Please the cursor on the first include.
   Select Filename prompt comes up.
   Now FindFile comes up to ask me again!

Question: Why doesn't "Find File" have Search->FindFile (find-file) functionality?

Reproduced, will fix in Beta3.
