SafeFileOpen->IgnoreCache

A side effect of SafeFileOpen->IgnoreCache is that every time I save a
file, I get a message saying the file has changed outside of
Mathematica, and do I want to overwrite?  This is the message Mark
Coleman was talking about, but I don't think he got it because of this
option.  I got it a couple of times last Tuesday, before I found out
about the option.

Some files are smaller than before --- perhaps because of other version
differences, as I'm testing by opening old files and saving them.  Some
hardly change.  The largest example file I've tried grew from 17,907 KB
to 20,966 KB.  The file was mostly animation graphics.

Hi Bobby,

I think you got a sharp discussion going! It is worthwhile to report
bugs,
or suspected bugs on MathGroup. It keeps them on their toes, even if a
few
of them don't like it. Did anyone else mention using 4.2 mention getting
corrupted notebooks?

Do you have enough information to say that turning ShortBoxForm off
helps.
How much bigger do your files get?

I hope you won't be too hard on WRI because, by and large, I think they
have
a wonderful product. It is probably because we like it so much that we
become upset when there appear to bugs at a fundamental usability level
with
new versions. It is like having something nice taken away. Generally, I
think they do try to fix and improve things - perhaps not always as fast
as
we would like. Anyway they do certainly take notice of MathGroup
criticisms.
