There is a preference that tells Eclipse to poll the file system looking for changes (Windows->Preferences expand General -> Workspace -> "Refresh using native hooks or polling").
I'm trying to override this property (PREF_AUTO_REFRESH) and set it to true. I've tried this in preWindowOpen() method of a class that extends WorkbenchWindowAdvisor:

IEclipsePreferences node = InstanceScope.INSTANCE.getNode(ResourcesPlugin.PI_RESOURCES);
		// auto-refresh default
		node.putBoolean(ResourcesPlugin.PREF_AUTO_REFRESH, true);
		try {
			node.flush();
		} catch (BackingStoreException e1) {
			// TODO Auto-generated catch block
			e1.printStackTrace();
		}


When i run the plug-in the preference is checked in Window->Preferences->General->Workspace but it's still not working. If I change it externally (from another editor) the file isn't refreshed as it should have. It is just checked but doesn't have the required behavior.
Am I not persisting the property right?
