The fix for this bug is in the trunk, it didn't make it into Emacs
24.3. So I don't think you can do anything to avoid these annoyances,
especially since you don't build your Emacs (if you did, I could
perhaps show you how to work around that by a simple source change).

I can only say that I never saw this on NTFS filesystems that I use
every day with Emacs 24.3. (Why do you use FAT32, btw? it's so much
worse than NTFS.)
