[Lazarus] Developing on Linux with files on Windows NTFS

I have been trying to develop a multi-platform app with the IDE on Linux
(MInt) and the source files on a Windows NTFS partition. I build and
test on windows but my primary work is done on linux so I don't stay
logged in to windows very long.
The problem I am having is that the Linux version of the IDE seems to
get confused by windows time stamps (at least that's what the symptoms
suggest). When I save an edited file (either code or form), the IDE
frequently (but not always) opens a copy of that file in a separate tab
and complains when I edit and save one of the two instances. It
sometimes deletes the most recent edit, other times the obsolete file.
I haven't found a windows driver for ext4 that doesn't warn of potential
corruption of the ext4 file system, otherwise I would develop with the
source on linux and occasionally build on windows.
One alternative is to keep the master source on linux and copy it all to
NTFS when I build/test on windows, but that has its own set of issues.
Has anyone had any success in using common storage for multi-platform
source code? If so, how do you do it?
