Hi, apologies in advance for whatever stupidities incurred.

I am running the eclipse bundled with adt that I obtained from android developer website (for some reason I cant place a link to it here).

I have used eclipse before, but have never witnessed anything like this. Sometimes after I have my project open and want to switch my view to a different file the eclipse window automactically switches to another file. For instance, when I want to look at res/layout/main.xml, I click on that file and the view opens briefly to this before switching to res/layout-small/main.xml. The behavior is completely uncontrollable. If I close res/layout-small/main.xml and go back to open res/layout/main.xml, eclipse seems to have a mind of its own and reopens res/layout-small/main.xml and switches the view back to that. If I wait long enough, perhaps several minutes, eclipse will allow me to edit the file I really want to edit.

I looked around any documents available but can see nothing that indicates that eclipse might have this behavior for any reason.

Help! Going nuts here.

I have not experienced this behavior. It may be something the Android
Development Tools are doing. Please read this post:

If you do find an answer about why ADT does this, feel free to respond here; I'm curious myself and we do tend to get a lot of Android developers seeking answers on these forums (even though we try to direct them elsewhere when appropriate).
