Description Petr Dvorak 2009-06-09 00:03:42 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200906031401)
Java: 1.6.0_13; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 11.3-b02
System: Linux version 2.6.28-12-generic running on amd64; UTF-8; en_US (nb)

1. Create a new Java Application
2. Import it in Hg and commit
3. Go to Files view
4. Create a file "file.txt" in the folder "New Folder" (with space) in the projects root
5. Commit
6. Invoke Mercurial>Show History
-> there are 2 'A'-records for the 2nd changeset: "New" and "Fodler/file.txt"
-> this issue is very annoying as it disallows you from using many Hg related features (mainly diff between 2 revisions)
Comment 1 Ondrej Vrabec 2009-06-09 09:44:07 UTC
Hg log's output (hg log with the --template argument) contains files separated by a single space, so there is no way to
tell if two files in the output are two files indeed or just a single file with a space inside their path.

This could be a way to solve the issue:

hg log call, which expects files in the output, does not use --template but rather --style attribute
