Local workspace not deleted on project path, etc. change when "use update" is checked
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HUDSON-8031
                 URL: http://issues.hudson-ci.org/browse/HUDSON-8031
             Project: Hudson
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: tfs
            Reporter: jeffolson
            Assignee: redsolo


Normally when information like the project path is changed, Hudson will delete the workspace (see issue #3784).  This not only deletes the workspace mapping, but it also deletes the contents of the local "workspace" folder.

However, when the "use update" flag is checked, the local workspace folder is not deleted.  This can result in orphan files being left in the workspace, since TFS does not know about them it will not delete them even if they are no longer in TFS.  This can happen if you switch the project path to a different branch where a file was deleted at some point before the branch.
