TextMate use exchangedata() to do atomic saves *when supported*. I’m 
almost certain that your Samba mount does not support this, so there is 
likely nothing to disable.

What is using the files in your virtual machine? I’m assuming that 
it’s a web server, so sounds more likely that this is “locking” 
the files (caching?) which Samba translates to “resource is busy”.

Next time it happens, instead of restarting your Samba service, try 
restart anything that uses these files to see if that solves the 

Not saying it’s a better fix, but understanding the problem would be 
first step in finding a solution.

If e.g. it’s some sort of caching middleware, perhaps this can be 
disabled or configured to not lock your files.
