Okay, I can see now what you mean. This occurs also for .rtfd
I have solved this problem a long time ago such that it completely came 
out of my mind.

Just for people who do not get the point, in general, version control 
system applications use to put private information inside folders. As 
file wrappers on mac os x are folders, cvs apps do put there some data. 
But cocoa file wrapper implementation is selfish and does not care 
about 3rd party stuff, each time you save, you only save the 
information know by the application, and everything else is ignored. 
This is a problem iTeXMac had in its early days with its projects. It 
has been fixed by reimplementing the faulty cocoa part.
