I get two different warnings...  If I save the file and then give that
file editor focus after 30 seconds, I get the "The file 'somefile.txt'
on the disk is more recent than the current buffer." warning.  If I
make a change to the file before the 30 seconds elapses and try to
re-save, I get a different warning that allows me to "overwrite" (so
it does another check just before saving).  ...eh..  I'm not sure if
that information helps, though.
