Web IDE overwrites files


I'm using SAP Web IDE (currently version 1.13.7) hosted on HANA Cloud Platform and experienced following behavior a few times:

The IDE overwrites some source files with the content of other files (existing in the project) randomly.

In my experience it wrote the content of my SAPUI5 index.html file over some of my JS files.

I didn't recognize a pattern and so I can't reproduce the bug by myself.

Possible causes I could think of:

  • Reloading Web IDE after session timeout with open files
  • Usage of git

My setup:

Mac OS X 10.10.4

Safari 9.0

I didn't experience this issue on other setups, simply because I haven't used any other browser or operating system for developing with Web IDE yet.

Has anyone of you similar experiences with SAP Web IDE?
