Brief Description:
This problem has now occured with a number of users, running different
versions of Office (see below).
When saving documents, Office seems to set the read-only bit. The problem
is best shown with Excel, which when saving a spredsheet, reports the
following error:
"The Document was saved succesfully, but Excel cannot re-open it because
of a sharing violation. Please Close the Document and try again."


We have the same problem! On 2.2.8a...
Unfortunatley, we can't reproduce it :-(
As I readed on news group, some people have the same problem on windows
May be this is Excel problem?
After all we used dos filemode to allow not owners change read-only bit....
