if there is a symbolic to to another folder ST3 (and ST2) doesn't show the content of these symbolic linked folders in the sidebar.
Setting up a test scenario is simple:
ln -s folder2 folder1
ln -s folder2 folder3
Opening test in ST3 shows only in folder1 files. folder2 und folder3 are empty (though the "real" folder is folder2). The console shows something like
scan: /longpath/test/folder2 has been seen before, skipping (using inode) previous path: /longpath/test/folder1 inode: 78343972
scan: /longpath/test/folder3 has been seen before, skipping (using inode) previous path: /longpath/test/folder1 inode: 78343972
The inode numbers are as follows
I guess that's because of performance issues. But I would like to see the real folder with files if I have to decide (would like to see all folders with files - though).
If you look at the inodes you can see that folder2 was seen first but folder1 is selected. That seems strange.
I found the following threads
So I've tried everything with "follow_symlinks" and "ignore_inodes" -- without success.
I'm using Mac OS X Mountain Lion.
