Gideon can't handle multiple projects at the same time, but it can handle 
multiple targets. Since you are changing your library very often, have you 
considered making it a subtarget of one of your projects? I admit this is a 
ugly solution, if it is used by many of your other projects, it would be 
clearly better to have it in a separate project...
So, if reloading of a project isn't an option, have you tried starting gideon 
twice? One with your lib-project, the other with your favourite project...
I still got the feeling that there is a slight misunderstanding somewhere.

I just tried adding some files to my project, using symlinks. It worked. They 
are symlinks and they stay symlinks. The bug rolf described is about the 
class-parsing of symlinked files, which currently seems broken. But 
nevertheless his symlinks seem to stay symlinks too (otherwise the bug 
wouldn't show up). So I have to assume a layer-8-error :-)

I still think symlinks are the way to go for you. Did you use the automake 
manager for adding you shared source files?
