If I enable "Disable swap file syncing", kate disables the swap file is completely (it's not updated or created).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable "disable swap files syncing" in "Configure Kate" -> Editor Component -> Open/Save -> Advanced
Swap file is completely disabled.
Only disable the fsync call.
The option should be renamed to "disable swap file", fixed, or removed completely.

Actually, it was a quite useful 'mistake' if you edit in directory mounted via sshfs. Right now such edits are not practical, since Kate is way too slow for this.
And I WAS using sshfs (not anymore after the 'fix'), since it is the only way for Kate to remember folding state across sessions, since files opened in sftp/fish/ftp folders are always completely unfolded.
Now, if anyone could stop immediate auto-unfolding code after typing an opening quote...
