Isn't it?  He described:

    [Original change behind Emacs' back, the trying to edit buffer]
    smobs.cc changed on disk; really edit the buffer? (y, n, r or C-h) y
    File on disk now will become a backup file if you save these changes.
    [So far so good.  Now pressing C-x C-s]
    Saving file /usr/local/tmp/lilypond/lily/smobs.cc...
    [That message is ok]
    smobs.cc changed on disk; really edit the buffer? (y, n, r or C-h) y
    [That question is ludicrous.  I am saving the file, not editing it.]

I don't think I see what the difference is from what I reported.

(Or maybe my description wasn't clear?)

Yes.
