Beware of ADT 0.9.8

Beware of ADT 0.9.8

Just a quick heads up for those of you using the ADT for Eclipse.

Upgrading to ADT 0.9.8 caused me some serious issues today.  For some
strange reason, deleting the 'gen' directory in a project will cause your
'src' directory to be deleted.

http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=11218

I sometimes resort to deleting the 'gen' directory when ADT does not
correctly update my R.java files (which forces the generated files to be
rebuilt).

I'm still recovering from this mess.  Be careful.

Thanks for letting everyone know!  That's a very good 'gotcha' to know
about.  I will be forwarding this to my dev team.
