Got a fix for ya! (Sorry I didn't post it earlier) Somebody in Wolfram support saw my post on the mailing list and sent me an email: "This appear to be a known issue with some Linux distributions that when Mathematica has two or more notebook files open at once and closes them, the second and later ones give this warning message without cause. In the examples that have been reported, the notebooks are fine. The workaround is to use the option inspector to set the option FileChangeProtection to None. (See the attached screen shot.) This disables the checking for when a notebook has actually been changed outside Mathematica, so be careful about having the same notebook open in multiple windows or applications at once." They attached this picture (I uploaded it to 2shared): http://www.2shared.com/photo/xph3MBA5/FileChangeProtectionScreenShot.html To go to the Options Inspector, press Ctrl+Shift+O, or go to Format > Options Inspector. Be sure to set "Show Option Values" to "Global Preferences". Look up "FileChangeProtection", or look under "Notebook Options" > "File Options", and set it to "None".
