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

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~ 

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.
