Shared folder text document versions not saved after remote edit

Accessing a shared folder with 'smb://10.0.1.37' [another Mac] and editing a TextEdit document in that folder returns the following when closing the document.

"The document "iTunes says I am synced with another library.txt" is on a volume that does not support permanent version storage.

You will not be able to access older versions of this document once you close it."

What it says is clear, what it means is not so clear: the document is on Mac(A) and TextEdit is accessing the document from Mac (B). Where are the 'permanent' version(s) if I edit the document 5 times on Mac (A) and how do I access them?

>> What has what you are doing got to do with iTunes?
Nothing - just a sample of what occurs when I close TextEdit with document on remote Mac (A).

>> s it the iTunes library.txt document, or a document in the iTunes library?
No, neither of these.

>> What is the text document that you are trying to edit? I
A normal 'plain text' document created in TextEdit - so special characters or other differences.

The document in question is a list of comments (all ASCII text) about iTunes I am creating. Not at all using any of the iTunes source or data program files.,

So is "iTunes" the name of the document, then? If so, try renaming it to something else. Apple may reserve that name.
