Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-12-13 17:50:00 UTC
The userprefs file has absolute file paths for the open file and breakpoints. This means it breaks when moved. They should be relative to its location.

This has been fixed for IDE files. I will fix it for breakpoitns shortly.

Wouldn't it make more sense to do this at the serializer level instead of manually in each place?

Fixed in version (master)
