They don't write to that file, thats right. But applications like Excel
and Word create a temporary file in the same location as the original
file. Just try to open a Word document on your local harddrive and while
word is running check the content of that folder.
If the temp file can't be written the operation fails - for obvious reasons.

I know it didn't help much... :)
