Comprehensive remote edit support is the primary reason we use SmartFTP here rather than another FTP client. I haven't tried remote editing with other FTP clients + Dreamweaver, as typically file association is too difficult to set up in other clients.

On another note, I had a go at trying to dump out some file handle information using Process Monitor however didn't get far as I use SmartFTP at work. One could probably use this with a filter to pull out information on 1) tcp connections 2) child processes and 3) file handles from this and filter them by the top-level process (smartftp, notepad, dreamweaver), then open, edit and save a set of remote files using notepad, then dreamweaver, and compare how SmartFTP does it for each. Maybe someone with more time to troubleshoot than I have :o

Good news everyone. The new build of SmartFTP (available now) includes a workaround which should take care of the issue.
