dd if=/dev/zero of=~/zero bs=4K ; File -> Save:

Displays a message "Error writing to file: No space left on device".
The file becomes 0 bytes.
Reports that the disk file is newer, and offers to reload it. :)
The permissions are OK, even for the empty file.

geany 0.20 (built on Nov  4 2010 with GTK 2.20.1, GLib 2.24.2, GIO)

No special options required to activate the new saving or something?..
