Affects: gedit (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Description:
Saving files over a cifs/smbfs server doesnt work.  You can open file,
edit then save perfectly.  But repeated saves after give you this error:

"The file /home/dhonn/website/arrays.php has been modified since reading
it.  If you save it, all the external changes could be lost. Save it
anyway?"

The think is lying to me because I havent made any external changes.

When I click "Save Anyway", i get this error:

"Could not save the file /home/dhonn/website/arrays.php."

But on the third try it works just fine.

Here are the error messages, btw there are also GUI glitches too:
