We have a space with versioning applied. Add an HTML document and edit it a few times so that we have a couple versions of this file. No problems so far.

Now, open this file with smbmount on UNIX and edit it with vi. Save the file and check the properties in Alfresco, everything is gone: no more versioning, no more description, inline edit disabled,…

Tested this in 1.4.3 and 2.1, both the Enterprise versions, same behavior.

When I open the file in vi it tels me "[noeol]" (no end of line), don't know if this has anything to do with it or not.

When I do
echo "some text" > myfile.html
the contents are written and the properties are kept so this seems to work but vi doesn't.
