When I add or delete a file inside a project, I would expect that the project tree inside Gnome Builders sidebar reflect that change immediately, but that's not the case. I have to click on "Files" to reduce the content of the view to the root and click on "Files" a second to, to open up the tree and reload the folder contents. I reported the issue upstream [1], but I was told that Builder should behave like this. So this might be a problem within Arch Linux. I noticed the problem within Gnome Builder 3.32.4, but the same happens with Gnome Builder 3.34.0 from Testing. I attached a video to demonstrate the problem.

I cannot reproduce the issue. Is it still valid for you?
