We are experiencing something like this; it seems when we got to a certain amount of images (somewhere in the 30-40 range, maybe more) in one sikuli folder then when the IDE is started it deletes somewhere around 28 images from that folder.

We had to split off a lib script to solve the problem, with many git reverts and awkward manual deletions of images from the offending folders.

This is a very not fun bug to run into on a large project- especially when you don't know it is coming.

Actually we figured this out- it was as a result of having a missing " at the end of a string. Everything after that was considered garbage and was deleted upon restarting the IDE. I turned off the setting where it deletes unused images. That solved my issue. I think this is maybe related to what I am seeing elsewhere on the bug message board.
