Hi All,

I've noticed, that when I open some files while a task is active, then
deactivate the task and then activate it again, the files are closed and
then reopened, but with the files' tabs in Eclipse shuffled randomly. I
understand that this might be because of Mylyn's relying on Eclipse's core
functionality on saving and restoring workbench state, however this
understanding doesn't make this bug less annoying :(

I guess this is a known bug; if so, could anyone please point it for me in
Bugzilla so that I could vote for it?

I know nothing about Mylyn's internal structure and very little about
Eclipse's. Still, as an idea, Mylyn could store the tabs order and somehow
reorder tabs to ensure the correct ordering on task activation.

Another solution could be on task activation to make mylyn imitate opening
the files one by one with a tiny pause after each one, so that the tabs
will naturally be in the correct order, from left to right, just as I need.

As both these solution have obvious side-effects, they could be made
disablable by a checkbox in the preferences... Isn't this all realistic?
At least sounds quite possible for me.

Thanks,
Alexey
