Does Mylyn ever clear the context for a task?

From time to time, I activate one of my old tasks, and the context is gone.
That is, even if I open the task editor, go to the context tab, and move
the slider all the way to the left, there is no context.

I just recently saw this happen.

Activate a task.
Work on the task and build a context.
With the task activated commit code for that task to CVS.
Deactivate the task.
Open the task editor for that task.
The task now has no context, as described above.
Activate the task.
The focused views are now blank, of course.

I have seen this problem affect both local tasks and Jira tasks.

I assume that this isn't normal behavior. Has anyone ever seen this problem
before, or should I file a bug? I'm seeing right now whether I can figure
out how to reproduce it reliably.

Mylyn should not clear the context unless this is explicitly triggered by a
user through the menu.

The best way to debug this is to look at the actual context files in your
<workspace>/.metadata/.mylyn/contexts/ directory.

Please note that we have fixed context related bugs recently but the fixes
will only get released in version 3.0.3 or later.
