Is this a regression from 2.2?

investigated and found it's not a regression for 2.2.

a sample package for this bug is SilverlightToolkit-Core package, for silverlight project.

found that the yellow restore bar did not display and the deleted package folder SilverlightToolkit-Core.4.2010.4 automatically comes back to the package folder.

I saw the enable download missing package checkbox is checked. I think the cause could be silverlight project auto-build itself once opened.

If the project is auto-building itself, then this makes sense. This should only be closed as by design if we can confirm that the project is being built and the packages are actually being restored.

I would consider it to be a bug if A) the packages are still missing and B) the yellow bar doesn't show up.

@oakes, please try with more than 1 packages and make sure all packages missing come back after project is reopened in VS.

also please check if WPF and SL projects are indeed building themselves after building.

@JeffHandley, my answer is B. The packages will come back, just the yellow bar not restore.
