Description Philip Ashmore 2007-11-12 14:38:00 EST
Description of problem:
I've got /var/log/yum.log open in Kate.
I switched to konsole and did a yum update.
Using the KDE panel I click on the 'log out' applet.
Kate blocks the log out to let me know that yum.log was updated - what use is that?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kate 2.5.8 (Using KDE 3.5.8-7.fc8 Fedora)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a file kate couldn't modify.
2. Switch away from Kate
3. Modify the file
4. Log out
Actual results:
 Kate blocks the log out to let me know that yum.log was updated.

Expected results:
Kate should realise that the only benefit of notifying the user of the modified
file is to block the log out.

This likely isn't something that we will vary from upstream behavior (and even
if we did, I'm not sure if it would be poissible to implement simply).  

If you want kate behavior changed, I'd suggest you take your issue to bugs.kde.org.
