[erlang-questions] IntelliJ, erlang-plugin and disappearing edits

I have a really annoying problem - I make edits to files and they disappear.

It doesn't happen often - but it does happen. Usually I just log it under
"I probably just thought I'd make the edit but never really did - I'm
getting old".

Today, though, I was certain and looked into the history of the file I
edited (IntelliJ have a local history). It *did* show that I made the
edits... and then 4 minutes later the file have been reverted to its
previous state (no indication of edits).

I suspect `_build` and how IntelliJ handles it. Ie. contents from _build is
being written back to the sources.

I can mark `_build` as `excluded`, but that kills autocomplete. I don't
want that.

I really don't know where the problem lies (me, IntelliJ or erlang-plugin)
- any tips from IntelliJ users would be welcome.

Best regards
