I can only address the Windows version of MMA 3.0. If you give a cell in a notebook the "Initialization Cell" property then save the notebook, MMA asks if you want to autosave. If you respond in the affirmative, then a copy of the initialization cell is saved in the same directory that the notebook file resides. It is saved with the same name as the notebook file, but with the .m file extension instead of the .nb file extension. Whenever you edit the initialization cell in the notebook file, the counterpart package file is updated automatically upon saving the notebook file. I do not know how to disable the autosave feature in a given notebook file once it has been assigned the autosave property. I hope this helped.
