Description aklein 2008-11-26 18:40:38 UTC
(Before: had installed NetBeans 6.5, tried to hand-install the Python early-access components. This was simple in
Solaris (SXCE) on x86, but more complicated on Windows. Gave up, uninstalled NetBeans. This may be entirely

Re-installed NetBeans 6.5, then NetBeans-Python-early-access.

I created a Project directory, containing subdirectories src and test;
started NetBeans, tried to move existing project into the new Project directory.
NetBeans locked up; java.exe at high utilization.

** Looks like NetBeans started creating directories recursively. **

It never stopped. I finally killed the java.exe.

Here is the trail:

$ pwd
/cygdrive/e/home/aklein/Architecture/Projects/BAM/programs   <-- existing directory
$ ls -l nbproject                                            <-- existing project
total 32
drwxr-xr-x 2 AKlein mkgroup-l-d   0 Nov 26 10:19 private
-rw-r--r-- 1 AKlein mkgroup-l-d 361 Nov 26 10:22
-rw-r--r-- 1 AKlein mkgroup-l-d 525 Nov 26 10:22 project.xml

$ ls -l nbproject/private
total 0
-rw-r--r-- 1 AKlein mkgroup-l-d 0 Nov 26 10:19

$ ls -ld Project                                    
drwxr-xr-x 5 AKlein mkgroup-l-d 0 Nov 26 11:53 Project       <-- new directory
$ ls Project                                                 <-- contains src, test... and its parent directory?
programs  src  test

$ ls Project/src     <-- src is empty, OK
$ ls Project/test    <-- test is empty, OK

# Project/programs contains copies of existing files,
# AND another copy of the new Project directory
# How deep does this go?

$ ls Project/programs
Project                   failed_insert2.log     notes
cname                     generating_data.txt    successful_insert_smallest.xml

$ ls -l Project/programs/Project/programs
drwxr-xr-x 4 AKlein mkgroup-l-d    0 Nov 26 11:55 Project

$ ls -l Project/programs/Project/programs/Project/programs
drwxr-xr-x 4 AKlein mkgroup-l-d   0 Nov 26 11:55 Project

$ find Project/programs -type d -name Project | wc -l

This is currently not available for setuptools project. It works for ant projects.
