Hello All,
I think this is a possible bug but i want to check it out with other users

When cloning a GIt repo I successfully get to the EGIT Dialog

"Select Wizard to use for importing projects"

There is 3 options
Import Existing Project
Use New Project Wizard
Import As General project

Before coming to this dialog it create the project directory and downloaded the stuff from the GIT repo.

The project directory is called /home/emarnau/workspace/pmservice

When i slect import as general project and click next says there is a problem.

/home/emarnau/workspace/pmservice overlaps the location of another project: 'pmservice'

It asks me to change the project name. If i change the name it still complains with same error and does not recognize i entered a new name for a project. Error will be

/home/emarnau/workspace/pmservice overlaps the location of another project: 'pmservice'

Even though i entered a new name "sideservice".

I think the reason is that it does not update the Directory field as i am typing. If it did then the error would disappear since it would not be able to find that directory.
