The patch is almost correct. The only mistake is that it is maybe too aggressive. When the user presses button "Modify

impl. of this RFE is part of recent daily builds. Could someone verify it works as expected?
The latest IDE build is available on http://bits.netbeans.org/download/trunk/nightly/latest/
This is great, I downloaded netbeans-trunk-nightly-201108040600-ml-php-linux.sh and it worked exactly as expected.
Thank you !
