Then you see something very different from what I see on the emacs-27
branch, which is very strange.

When I modify the file in Emacs, after it was modified by some other
program, I see this:

  FILE changed on disk; really edit the buffer? (y, n, r or C-h)

Pressing 'y' shows this:

  File on disk now will become a backup file if you save these changes.

Typing C-x C-s then shows this:

  FILE has changed since visited or saved.  Save anyway? (yes or no)

Typing "yes" then says

  Wrote FILE

That sounds reasonable to me.
