We can't help you unless you provide more information.

Some other questions:

Does this issue happen with _every_ file, or just some?
Eg does it happen with:

rm -f /tmp/FOO
touch /tmp/FOO
emacs -Q /tmp/FOO

What kind of file system does this file live on? What does

df /path/to/pageNetConfig.xml


Before you start Emacs, what does

ls -l /path/to/directory/pageNetConfig.xml
ls -ld /path/to/directory/.*

print for the directory containing pageNetConfig.xml?

What does it print after you open the file in Emacs and make a change,
before you save?
