Pic of random nesting issue

My files are mysteriously being nested under other files. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it.  They can be any .cs from anywhere in my solution. Moving them back out to their root folder has no effect.  The next time I open the ide, there they are again. See attached screenshots...

Is there any way to reproduce this?
Comment 2 Matt Cuda 2013-08-05 13:23:46 UTC
I don't do anything to reproduce it.  I come in one day and they are all nested.  And it seems to randomly add one from time to time.
Comment 3 Matt Cuda 2013-08-05 13:25:27 UTC
I keep making this suggestion but it falls on deaf ears.  You guys really need to create some large projects with multiple layers of  folder/files and work with it on a daily basis.  Yes, it will be costly, but it will uncover these bugs.

It seems that most of these issues involve large scale, complex projects.

We're not ignoring the suggestion. We edit Xamarin Studio in Xamarin Studio, and the core solution has 10336 C# files and 72 projects...

Come on now that is not the same thing.  Business apps are totally different animals.  Nothing makes total sense in a business app :)

Also note that moving them back to the root does not work.  they pop back in the next time.
