in Vim, the persistent undo and with it all changes to a file are
personal setting. the information is AFAIK not stored in the file
itself. when the ownership of the file changed from you to someone else,
the meta information of that file probably changed as well.
did you try to make you owner of the file, if that resolves the issue? I
don't know if this can be done in Vim, but any file manager will make it
