Description Peter Hultqvist 2012-08-06 09:05:30 UTC
This applies to a single open .cs file within a git-version controlled project.

The original code looks like this:
		public Read (BinaryReader r)
			Z = r.ReadInt32 ();
			D = r.ReadInt16 ();

Then I go to the Changes bottom tab and show the diff between an old revision and Local, so far all looks good.
I can there revert single groups of lines and it looks as expected.
When I go back to the Source bottom tab I expect the code as shown/modified in the Local side to be the one presented.
Instead I sometimes get a mangled result:

		public Read (BinaryReader r)
			Z = r.ReadInt3          D = r.ReadInt16 ();
e ();

To generate the test case above I went to the Changes tab. The right column was always Local.
The left one I changed to a previous revision, there I reverted some changes.
Then I changed the left side to Base and reverted those new changes so I should get back to Base=Local.
Instead I get the result as presented above.

Note that the mangled code appears first when I go to the Source tab, before that it all looks as expected.

This does not happen for all cases but for those it does it can be repeated with the same problem every time.

Comment 1 Peter Hultqvist 2012-08-06 09:07:27 UTC
I simplified the code sample, there was an extra line in the end of the function:

r.ReadByte ();

Which could be from where the last "e ();" came from.

I've reviewed the code & found a potential issue - reopen, if it happens again.
