If I have a version of the file in the editor and perform an svn update in the terminal, the file changes on disk.However, if I save or typeset, the local version in the editor gets saved and I get no conflict warnings! (However, if I change the file through another application such as Textmate, I get a conflict warning). Is this a bug. or?

TeXShop 3.06 uses Lion's ability to backup files automatically. How all that works, what happens when and how all this interacts with a versioning system such as SVN is still a mystery to me. If anyone out there has a good understanding of what is going on under Lion please write up something so I and others can understand how to deal with all of this new stuff. 

PS: Everything I've read really treats it all like a black box and I don't get any satisfaction from their ``explaination''.

Good Luck,
