Description Tomas Stupka 2012-05-23 13:16:26 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 20120522-968b3ca196a2) (#968b3ca196a2)
Operating System = Mac OS X version 10.6.8 running on x86_64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.6.0_31; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 20.6-b01-415; Apple Inc.
Runtime = Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.6.0_31-b04-415-10M3646

have a file in the IDE which comes from a symlink folder

externally change the file => the file is notified by its real path to the watcher, but the watcher doesn't propagate the event because there is no FO instance (only the symlink instance exists)

Let's pretend this is not the common case (althrough in case of PHP one cannot be really sure) and lower the priority.

Anyway the only way to do something with this is to have the symlink detection inside the masterfs. Tomáš already has one issue that would need the symlink detection to be moved from parsing.api to masterfs, so adding him to CC.
