Stop a Project from moving files around?

So I’ve got a hefty project file, and within the ‘patchers’ folder I’m keeping another folder called ‘waves,’ which includes some audio files that fill out a [umenu]. I need to keep that folder right next to the main patcher, so that when I build the project as an application, it searches in the right place (a ‘waves’ folder in the same directory as the application, so that the end-user can add new sounds).

However, every time I open the project file, it moves the files within ‘waves’ from within ‘patchers/waves’ to ‘other.’ Is there any way to mark a folder or file so that the project system doesn’t attempt to move things for me?

open project inspector
uncheck “keep project folder organized”

it is strange that by default this setting is activated …
