Phantom file changes

Recommended Posts

We are seeing quite a lot of phantom files appearing in our merged changesets.

That is when we do a merge there are files listed which haven't been touched at all in the branch we are merging into. They are legitimate files though.

This ends up causing lots of problems where artists have to merge lots of code related  files etc.. 

If binary files show up it can take a long time to process them, one at a time even though they haven't changed at all.

Do you have any idea why this is happening?

If the files are downloaded during a merge, there should be somehow involved in the merge conflicts.

Are you using "cloaked.conf" rules? If some cloaked files are involved in the merge, they will be appearing in the workspace after the merge.

I guess you are using the Plastic GUI (not Gluon)?
