When right clicking on any random directory in Source Control and selecting "Get Specific Version--Get Changeset", the entire source control tree is retrieved for that operation rather than simply getting only the files associated with that changeset.  The only foolproof method to get just the files in the changeset is to use the command line tools with the /getcs switch.

Thanks for the feedback on Get. The current behavior of getting all changes up to the specified version is by design, as most of the time users will want to have all of the changes that other users may have made. This also ensures that dependencies are up to date, builds are not being broken, etc.

For now, this will probably only remain available as a command line option, as we don't believe this should be the mainline scenario for Get, and we don't want to confuse or encourage users to use the option.
