Thank you!  This explains some occasional problems I have run into
that I previously attributed to carelessness.

I normally run several instances of GNU Emacs and do not expect this
behavior.  I expect the same behavior as with other conflicting
modifications, a message like this:

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