Hi all,
every time after DST (daylight saving time) or time zone change, Notepad++ reports file contents change for every opened tab. I haven't noticed that with any other software.

Version: 6.5.5
OS: Windows 7 64 bit

Reproducible: always

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open any files in NPP
2. Change time zone in OS
3. NPP displays pop-up for every opened file about "File has been changed on file system" (or similar)

Expected behaviour:
- no popup after time zone change or DST change

    This happened to me this morning. Last weekend the DST changed (summer time!), resulting in a number of "file has changed" popups after waking up my laptop.
