Update file on save on OS X instead of creating a new one  XML

Currently, it appears as though VUE on OS X creates a new file when I save, instead of updating the existing file (if you examine the file before and after save using ls -li in terminal, you will see the inode value changes). I'm guessing it's doing the same thing Adobe does by writing to a temp file, then copying that over the original. Normally this is not an issue, but I am using OpenMeta tagging and the tags get wiped out. Now, I'm also using another piece of software that automatically replaces the tags, but I'm using yet another piece of software that automatically alerts me to any files that don't have tags. So now I've got the odd situation where I save the file, get an alert that the file has no tags, and then the tags automatically get reloaded and I've now got an extra dialog I need to dismiss.

At the moment, VUE is the only software I use that exhibits this behavior, and a slight modification to the saving should fix it.
