[Geany] File has been modified dialog over cifs

When saving files over a remote samba share I get persistent messages
saying the source file has been modified. Even though no other process
is using the file.

Changing the disk check timeout to zero remedies the sporadic messages
but I still get a warning on every save. I assume geany is just going
on the modification timestamp which always appears to be 1 second out.
The server's clock and my client's clock are synchronised although this
shouldn't matter anyway.

Is this a bug with cifs, or with geany? Got any ideas on how to fix it?

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and the server is Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
