NetBeans was stuck in a never-ending source scan, so I decided to exit the IDE. Two background activities - "checking for external changes" and "background parsing of source files" were running.
When I tried to exit, I got this strange dialog. It has Yes and No buttons, but it does not ask any question. See attached screen shot.
The "checking for external changes" has nothing to do with java/project. It's a part of the masterfs.
Ah, didn't know which background activity actually caused the dialog.
Possibly just remove the code that shows the dialog completely. Also consider removing Tools/Options/Misc/Files/Auto Scan for Changes checkbox.

I'm leaving the checkbox in the options dialog for now.
Thank you for reporting.
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201309120002* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
