kdevelop and symlinks

I found a problem with the way KDevelop handles symlinks. I used symlinks
because I have source shared between two applications (a client and a
server communicating with each other). Since KDevelop 1.4.1 currently can't
handle two projects in one project (or how would you call that? with MSVC
it would be two projects in a workspace) I used symlinks to access the
shared files in the other directory. However, when the files are added to
the project, the symlinks are overwritten by 'real' files.
The problem is probably that KDevelop loads the contents, closes the file,
and opens a 'new file' to write back the contents (and insert a header if
that is required). If my diagnosis is correct, then just 'seeking back' to
the beginning of the file without closing it first would solve this
undesirable side effect...
BTW: KDevelop is a really great program !!!
