  • Priority changed from major to minor
  • Version changed from 0.53 to 0.82

the situation has changed now at least on WinXP and 0.82. The monitoring works fine and the user receives file change notification if the file is deleted or changed.
If the file is changed the user can reload the file from disk or stay with current content. In case of file is deleted there is also an option to reload the file which end with an empty tab. If the user edits the contents and saves the file a new file is created with the old name.

I think in case the file is deleted the option to reload the file should be changed to 'Close File' which ends in exit editing without saving the content.
