I'm running Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede) with a Subversion and a Maven plug-in.
Sometime this afternoon, the "Build Automatically" capability just stopped working. I can do a clean/rebuild okay. I can run a Maven build okay. But when i edit a source file and save it with Build Automatically enabled, the file gets saved, but it is not compiled. I've pulled my hair out on this one and cannot figure out what has gone wrong.
Any ideas about the cause of the problem and possible solutions?

After posting this, I committed my code to SVN. I then checked out the project and the problem was gone. However, while working over the weekend, it came back.
I found that after creating a new project, that project doesn't have a problem.
It's not just that the Build Automatically is failing. Even with that option turned off, making a code change, saving, and then choosing "Build Project" has no effect. The only way I can compile the code is by manually running a Maven compile.
Clearly, something must be getting broken in the project meta-data; I'm just not sure what.
