When a file is updated outside the IDE then tab text turns blue. Nice touch :)

However when the file is updated several times the markup is added, over and over again, resulting in a very long tab (hiding all the others) and not even blue anymore ;-)

See attached screenshot.

How do you reproduce that?

My use case was simply 2 open monodevelops - but I couldn't get that one. I always get the reload message at the top - when changing the file the IDE don't change.

When I hit reload (or not) the tab becomes black again. Additional changes then start that all over.

This happened with:
* a file opened in MD that was not part of the current solution;
* several checkout of GIT to track a regression (affecting the mtouch.cs file, not the MD solution)

I _might_ have ignored the "reload message" (a few hours) earlier - I can't recall for sure. Also the Window menu shows the extra long (markup) name, not just the file name.

Can you reproduce that ?
Comment 4 Sebastien Pouliot 2011-09-19 08:10:17 UTC
It happens from time to time (it's not common) but I don't have a receipe to reproduce it on demand. The only common thing I'm sure of is that it's related to GIT checkouts.

Sometimes looking through the source code helps :). The bug was related to the window main menu popup.
(that thing that shows the list of all open files)
