So even after you disabled the support for mangled Windows 95 names, you are still seeing failure from atomic saving?

I plan to try and branch TM to disable Atomic Saves for certain paths (like
I've dug through the source a little, but this change doesn't seem trivial,

TextMate reporting “Atomic Saving Failed” is a bit of a misnomer.

I think I described it earlier, that on a network file system it would create a new /path/to/file~ and then run mv /path/to/file~ /path/to/file.

So what you probably want is to instead open the original file directly and just overwrite it, so you are not disabling a feature, your changing the code (to be less safe).

I mentioned some tests in the thread about atomic saving, if it still fails for you, evne with the name mangling support disabled in SMB, it would be good to get the results from these tests, as then TextMate could maybe handle the issue better.
