+Product: Mono Develop
+OS: Red Hat 9.0
+Summary: Allows you to name a file with the name of an existing file
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what
+you are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+IDE allows you to use the same file name twice, leading to problems.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Add a new blank XML file to a project, call it "app.config".
+2. Enter some XML and save the file.
+3. Repeat step 1.
+IDE allows you to create a new file with the same name. This messes up
+the GUI a bit (you'll actually see three entries in the tree, and one of
+them is missing an icon). Also, the original file's contents are erased
+(file becomes 0 bytes), which is BAD.
+Error that the name is already taken.
+How often does this happen?
+Probably the same thing will occur if I try to re-name a file, etc.
+Watch out for names that might be taken on disk even if they are not
+taken in the project (i.e. a file in the project directory that has not
+been added yet).
