Ok. second attempt at writing a post here.
I have been using ST2 for many months. It has become my editor of choice for coffeescript.
I have a cake file and several directories are constantly monitored to compile sources as they are updated.
All worked well until I purchased a license and installed ST3.
The problem is with the temporary file created when a file is saved to disk. It's name is <source name~XXXXXXXXX.TMP.
What happens is that nodes.js seems to try to access this file for some reason as it monitors the directory for changes, and it's not allowed. So it crashes with an EPERM error.
This does not happen with ST2, or with Netbeans, or with Notepad++.
Only ST3 has this problem.
The temporary file disappears as soon as one presses the Y key to answer the question 'do you want to terminate the batch file Y/N'
And if one restarts the batch file, it compiles everything ok, and starts monitoring the directories. Until a file is saved again, and the problem occurs again too.
What can be done? Saving a file is such a basic operation that I can't believe ST3 is trying to innovate in this area!! Could ST3 go back to the way files were saved in ST2? I'm sure no one would notice, except those who have spent hours like me on this problem, and these people will applaude.
