_settings.scss in Foundations 5 help

I recently installed a project folder with the new Foundations 5 with compass. In the scss folder there is a _settings.scss file that contains all the variables for the layout.

It would be super convinent to just change the variables in this scss page. However, when I try to save it and compass is "watching" it will say that there has been a changed detected in the settings.scss file, but then shortly after says that it is identical to app.css (which it's not but ok...).

It seems like this identical problem isn't allowing any of the changes in my settings.scss file to stick. So what am i doing wrong here?
