1. Had non-writable files open in NetBeans - tabs' titles were italicized
2. Checked the files out in another process (Perforce, incidentally)
3. The tabs' titles were still italicized, making me think they are non-writable.
4. Only once I started typing in one of them the tab's title changed to non-italicized bold. Hit Ctrl-Z (undo) - and it was regular non-italicized.
I'm pretty sure this worked before (immediate identification of writable files made writable), but it may have worked for me in Windows XP while this report is in Windows 7.

It works fine for me in Window 7. When I change a read-only attribute of a file,
it's recognized immediately after I focus the editor tab.
Can you please try it in NetBeans 7.3.1, or in the latest development build?
Closing the issue. Please reopen it if you can reproduce the bug in a newer
NetBeans version. Thank you.
