Description Nicolas R 2013-08-30 15:28:22 UTC

Something really strange since version 4.0.5

We use Novell OES server for network shares with novell edirectory for authentication and rights management. Network shares are mapped as disk on Win7 desktop.

In this environnement all ods, odt, odg documents on disks corresponding to network shares appear to be "locked by unknown user - Open read-only".

When a document is really locked by a user, the user name appears.

No problem with xls, doc document on network disks.

No problem with document on local disks.

No problem with 4.0.4 and previous versions.

Tested with freshly released : same problem

With development version 2013-08-20 : no problem.

Is there somebody to test with similar environnement ?

What's new in file locking since 4.0.5 ( and not enabled in developpement version) ?
