this is pretty unusual. I fear your IDE has designed to reorganise things.

Best to do a clean checkout of the trunk -which is always up to date- 
and add the new source file.

If the patch has lots of noise in it, dont include those patches. Tests 
are nice though; we've always been a bit lax about testing SSH stuff 
because its a functional test that needs servers and permissions set up 
right, but we could improve that perhaps.

What is your new task trying to do?
