+Bug#: 61787
+Product: Mono Develop
+Version: unspecified
+OS: Red Hat 9.0
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Wishlist
+Component: project

+TargetMilestone: ---
+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.
+Actual Results:
+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.
+Expected Results:
+Error that the name is already taken.
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time.
+Additional Information:
+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).
