Default problem with mercurial support if BC already running

After following the instructions on the BC VC page, the following command:
Code:
hg bc
works great if BC is not already running. Specifically, it opens a folder session comparing two temporary folders which contain copies of the files to be compared, from which the individual file pairs can be compared.

However, if BC is already running (even if only the BC home page), the folder session opens, showing two temporary folders containing the appropriate files, but these temporary folders do not actually exist, so cannot be compared.

Apparently the temporary folders are deleted immediately after BC was invoked. (If one does a fast refresh, BC says that the system cannot find either path.) The folders exist long enough to display their contents initially, but no longer than that.

Hi Jonathan,

The current release doesn't support having the directory compare wait for the tab to be closed like the file viewer types do. Fixing that is on the todo list, but won't make it into 3.1.7. For now you should be able to work around it by adding /solo to the command line you pass to BC.
