#90 "Problem Occurred" after renaming project and building all configurations

Next release
Iulia Vasii

Tested on eclipse-cpp-kepler, Windows host.
Plug-in version: installed several versions from 1.1.3 to 2.1.2, able to reproduce on all of them.

Steps to reproduce:
- download eclipse kepler for C/C++ development and install on top GNU ARM Plug-in 2.1.2-201402180751
- during installation I chose only "GNU ARM C/C++ Cross Compiler Support" (
- File -> New -> C Project
- Executable -> Hello World ARM C Project -> Cross ARM GCC
- Next, Next,...
- fill Toolchain path, Finish
- Project -> Build All (successful)
- right click on project then Rename
- again Project -> Build All (successful)
- right click on project then chose Build Configurations -> Build All
"Problem Occurred" window is displayed, see attached screenshot.
Same happens when selecting Build Configurations -> Build Selected... -> check only Release target - OK.

Didn't notice any exceptions in the eclipse log file, only:
!ENTRY Build error 4 0 2014-02-25 16:23:58.264
!MESSAGE Resource '/armv8_prj' does not exist.

    to be investigated

    I reproduced the problem. not sure, but it seems specific to projects using the plug-in. I'll try to find a fix during the next days.

    the problem persists even after fixing bug#93. I guess it is somehow related, but could not identify the problem yet.

    closing and reopening the project apparently cures it. it seems renaming projects is more painful than expected.

    the problem is somewhere deep in Eclipse, where I can't reach easily since I don't have all sources in my development environment, I have only the CDT sources and some Eclipse debug sources.

    for the moment we'll leave it like this, it is just a transient problem until the new name propagates properly, restarting Eclipse or close/open the project cures it.
