Just a thought...

I've had a similar issue years back - at least it sounds similar. But
that was due to the fact that I used symlinks to folders under Linux.
The IDE got confused between the true path and the symlink path - always
thinking they are two separate files.

As the others suggested, I would rather setup a (bare) Git repo as a
common share between Linux and Windows.
