B3: issue with directory view and project wildcard

(1/4) > >>

When making changes to the content of a directory tree (eg, using git) that's been added to my SE project with a "*" wildcard the SE project pane will sometimes "fall out of sync" (I use "directory view"). Anecdotally, removal of one file in the tree results in the vanishing of a different directory in the project's directory view. If I hit "refresh" in the project pane the missing items reappear. I haven't yet confirmed if the missing files problem extends to searching in project files or is limited to just the directory view.

I will take a look to see if there is an issue with Directory View and wildcard background refresh.  Could it be possible that maybe the missing directory got re-sorted in the view?  Any additional info may be helpful in tracking it down.

Also note, that if a the wildcard tree gets refreshed and a file is removed and the folder has no more matching files, it will not be displayed.  It is still tracked, but there isn't an option to display empty folders.

The changes were only to files within directories and at no point were the disappearing directories ever empty. Also, I think the directories that disappeared were sometimes unrelated to the files that were manipulated (eg, make a change to content of directory "/a/b/c/" and directory "/a/f/x/" disappeared)... will try to confirm when it next happens.

Could you confirm which platform you are running on?  I have discovered one issue with folder deletion not handled in some cases, I'll continue looking for any other issue.
