My colleague reports that he is seeing files named:

slickedit.tmp.vpb

in new directories that he created.

Why are these getting created?

This is with 25.0.1, hotfix 6, Linux x64

Interesting, it looks like we leave the vpb file around when you build a java file without a project open, the single file project case.

The file itself is a dependency file generated by vsbuild.  For C++ or Java projects built with vsbuild, these will be named after the project, and in the object file directory for c++, or the project file directory for java. 

In this case, the single file project code is using slickedit.tmp.vpj as a fake project name.  I don't think that file gets written to the filesystem, but vsbuild uses the vpj file name to build the path for the vpb file, and it just gets left there.   

I'll take a look at it, I'm not sure if this is hot-fixable yet.

It was a missing case in the the cleanup for single file projects.  It's not hot-fixable, so it will be available in the next point or regular release.
