I don't see this anymore in 3.7.5 (MXE)

==> seems to have been solved.

Closing this report.

Do you still see this issue after John's changeset 16564:aa5299a1d770 ?

Subject says all.

Found while debugging with quite a bit of file tabs open when I started getting messages like "file <foo.bar> was changed by another application. Reload Yes/No?"
It turned out the message came from another file tab where the same file was opened.

On Linux opening a file twice in the editor doesn't work.

WAG: could this bug be caused by testing with *nix full file name rules (incl. path) to Windows paths?
