*.py source file surprisingly deleted with Pydev/Eclipse. Who else experienced this ?

Hi Nebur,

Are you using svn? I did have a problem once related to that (but it's
more related to the svn plugin than to pydev)... I think that for some
reason the undo seems to be mapped to a creation of a file that came
from svn (I don't remember exactly how to reproduce it, but I do
remember it was associated only with svn -- cvs didn't have that
problem -- but it was something like trying to make undo on a file
that didn't have anything changed and then it would go to the svn and
remove another file).
