samba share erroneous files changed on disk by external program
Submitted by xenthar on Tuesday, 20 December, 2016 - 12:32
I recently started using a samba share (I don't know what version) being mounted from Windows.

There is probably a slight second delay in the date Samba registers for the file and the date my Windows has, or something like that. But jEdit continuously says that something changed my file, when nothing happened.

Is this a bug with jEdit? Is this expected behaviour?

Windows time was out of sync

Windows time was out of sync because of the Windows (Microsoft) time server being buggy, but I have that fixed now (changed to another server) and the problem still remains.

On every alt-tab the program complains of changed files. Actually it does that about two times and then stops (for the current save).

If I then wait a few seconds it starts doing it again.
