Description PJ 2012-04-04 10:58:41 UTC
Navigating after deleting a file that is part of the navigation history results in the ability to create many navigation history entries for the same line.

Create solution.
1. Open a CS file and click on a line to create a navigation history entry
2. Add a new Txt file. Click into the file to add an entry there.
3. Return to the CS file and click on another line to create another entry.
4. Remove and delete the TXT file.
5. Navigate into the deleted file's entry (CMD+OPT+LEFT or CMD+OPT+RIGHT)

Actual behavior: Search->Navigation History shows more than one entry on the line in the CS proj file.

 The cursor in Navigation history also indicates that my current location *is* in the empty file: http://screencast.com/t/ClDli59skuk5

Not sure how to more gracefully indicate the file is deleted, but the duplicate entries issue might have a solution. 

This issue does not seem to cause any real problems, so marking as trivial. If people are relying on Navigation history when working with large projects, we might want to up that.
