NB7.2beta, Linux, JDK6_u32
I have Git repository and bunch of files opened in IDE and I have 'diff' window open permanently in the IDE as well though most of the time its tab is not active.
Sometimes I create a temporary file somewhere inside the repository and the IDE wants to read it once it detects that it exists. If the file is large I get a warning. Do not bother me with this: most likely I will delete it sooner than I get back to diff window. It is only a disruption.
The stack trace shows that the reason is diff module.

Log: #214208 - Warning dialog about too large files from inactive diff window
refreshing files only when the view is active, deactivated view should not waste resources and do meaningless work
