Preventing OSX from writing dot files on NTFS disk?
I'm using NTFS-3G and have one of my Windows' installations partitions mounted in OSX. I like being able to write to it, but I'd like to prevent OSX from making its invisible files (like ._filename.txt for something I've edited with TextMate) on it because they show up in Windows and are generally of no use. Likewise there's no need to have things like .Trashes there since NTFS-3G can't delete to the trashcan anyway.
Is there any way to do this?

Just think of it as Mac OS marking it's territory.
It loves to piss on any folder it can.
No real solution exists, but for $13 Blue Harvest will try clean every lamp-post that Mac OS has cocked it's leg against.
