That's an old preference that should possibly be removed.  What you need
to do in Wing 3.0 is right-click on the top-level directory or directories
in your project and uncheck the "Watch for External Changes" item there.

The older preference has some remaining utility in that it could be used to
then auto-add newly created and saved files, but I have a feeling its utility
is outweighed by the confusion it's likely to cause.
