Can the same file be in two different outgoing change-sets?

Can a file end up in two different change-sets? I suppose that could happen if I marked a change-set as complete and then made changes to a file in that change-set. But is there a way that could happen without marking a change-set as complete? I think I had seen that once or twice before, but haven't been seeing it lately.

No, a file can only exist in 1 active (not completed) change-set. I have encountered the case where I associated a change-set with a work item and someone else accepted that change-set and completed it. The file may then appear in a new change-set if you make changes to it after that happens, and the previous change-set that contained that file should be set as completed in your 'Pending Changes' view.
