OK, it makes sense. An additional question: you save by task switch out from MEW so have you noticed any dependency on time between switch out from MEW and back into? And when you edited N files since task switch, did you always received either N warnings or 0 or something between?

AFAIK MEW compares pre and post save timestamps for equality. Timestamp is binary encoded time including seconds so if it really depends on changed minutes as you described, it could be redirector feature instead of MEW. Really interesting :)
