Steps to reproduce:
1. use copy-paste the following code into a new project file:

class Foo
	virtual void bar() {}

class Bar : public Foo
	void bar() {}

2. Right-click on Foo::bar() and choose "Refactor -> Change Signature..."
3. In the box change "virtual void bar()" to "virtual void bar() const" and click on OK.

Actual result:
Window closes and the bar()-method in Foo is changed.

Expected result:
Either of the following would be acceptable/expected:
a) Window closes and bar()-methods in Foo AND Bar are changed.
b) Window closes and a Warning-popup is displayed "Change in constness of method in new signature. You should now update references if they need to accomodate the change."
VA Find References then shows Bar::bar() as an entry to investigate.

We are looking into making Change Signature aware of derived classes, so that all of the functions will be updated:

Change Signature was overhauled in build 2007 and now supports changes to a class hierarchy.
