I tend to get an error in the Mathematica front end when I try to save a notebook or a *.m file.
I get this error message when working off of my hard drive (ext4 on Ubuntu 11.04) and on my flash drive (FAT32).

The following message is displayed:
"Why the Beep?"
"The notebook's file $FILE has changed outside of Mathematica. The notebook has been renamed to Untitled $X. Mathematica has a complete record of changes made to the notebook, but might not be able to recover."

I do not have any other programs reading / writing to these files, so I am unsure of what is causing this. It could possibly be GNOME or my file system, but I am unsure of how to check.

Anybody know how I should proceed?
