Cloud9 guided tour deletes project files in the Cloud9 directory after guided tour.

I installed the new Angstrom-Cloud9-IDE-GNOME-eglibc-ipk-v2012.05-beaglebone-2012.11.22.img on my sdcard.
Booted the beagle bone.
Everything seems working fine.
Open Cloud9 on the 3000 port of the beaglebone with Chrome Version 25.0.1364.172 on Mac OSX 10.8.3 Build 12D78
It asks me whether I want a guided tour, to which I click to confirm.
The tour gets executed, and after it is finished the Cloud9 directory is empty and al files gone.
It is reproducible, each time.
Earlier I assumed it was because of an error I encountered but I have run this scenario (clean from scratch) three times now and the result is the same.
I have an earlier post in which the effect is mentioned, but evidently my conclusion in there was wrong as to the cause of this. I did run the guided tour earlier, never realizing this could cause this to happen.

Thanks for the info. I never completed the guided tour!

I have seen cases where people have deleted all the content and didn't
realize it. In all of those cases, they hadn't actually editing anything,
so a simple 'git checkout' in the command-window brought everything back.

Thanks Jason,
Being a total babe in the woods I do not even know what 'git checkout means" but will git there.
I usually do not even read manuals, and try by successive approximation so I understand that the ones in the know do not take these tours. This one issue was blatant enough for me to report as an issue, as I hope there will be other old fogeys in that world as well.
The only thing I know is C/C++ and struggling to get a dev environment on the amazing beaglebone up and running I can work with and trust. Believe you me, I am stunned by the specs of this little critter after such a long time out of the technical side. I am only barely coping with the IDE systems I can (not) get working as I expected.
Regards and lots of success.

I am evidently such a dimwit posting to my own replies, that I wonder what I am doing if I do not even understand the forum software covering the kit I am trying to tackle.
Also a forum newbie as you may notice:-)

Hi,

I also ran into the same problem but the cloud9 folder in /var/lib was
completely deleted.
This means that there are no .git files anymore so I can not get the latest
version:
fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git

Is there any other way to recover the files? It seems that the structure
here
https://github.com/jadonk/bonescript
differs from the one I saw for a short time in the cloud9 ide on the
beaglebone.

opkg install bonescript

How do we get this issue reported via an official channel as a bug? It deleted some code I was working on for half a day. I’d like to help others by reporting this, or if somebody else out there knows how to, please do.
