"Your sketch has been modified externally" messages even w/ no changes #2852

Just in case this is helpful earlier today I was able to reproduce it consistently when editing and saving a sketch while it was running. The error appeared consistently and then when I edited and saved the sketch with it not running, the error did not appear.
Unfortunately with some tests now with a simple practically empty sketch the error seems to be appearing more erratically so I'm not sure I am right about the above. It might have been something else.
Hopefully this is a little bit helpful.
I'm seeing this bug on windows with version 3.0.1 on windows 7. When I run my sketch and then close it, processing constantly prompts me if I want to reload until I click "Yes". Clicking "No" only makes the popup immediately reappear. Also, after I click yes, one of my files (tabs) is gone. However, I can recover it by renaming the .tmp file for it. The bug is intermittent, but when it happens it's really annoying and kind of scary. I was afraid I had lost work the first time it happened.
