Saving an instance to an rbxm/rbxmx while autosave triggers results in a studio hang

Currently in studio, if you save an instance to an rbxm or rbxmx file through the “Save to file…” feature, and if studio’s autosave feature happens to autosave at the same time, both operations will get stuck in an infinite loop waiting for the other to finish, resulting in a hang. The rbxm / rbxmx file that was being saved to gets corrupted as a result, since the write operation never fully finished executing.

Reproduction steps:

  1. Right click an instance in the datamodel, such as a part
  2. Click “Save to file…”
  3. Click the save button in the file dialogue window
  4. If an autosave started happening at the same time as step 3, studio is now infinitely hanging

I haven’t ran into it lately, I will definitely make a follow-up thread if it happens again.
