Description Daniel Hughes 2011-11-18 00:33:12 UTC
To reproduce:
1. Create a solution with two projects A and B
2. Reference project A from Project B
3. Add a .png (or any non code file) to the project
4. Set 'Copy to output' for that file
5. Build solution

-> .png file does not appear in project B's output folder

This is a regression since 2.4, and is a deviation from the Visual Studio behavior.
