We have not got issues with the Solidworks lock files.  It is also  
correct that running Solidworks data on a network drive is not  
supported by Solidworks.

I am suspecting that there may be a permissions issue for your  
particular share.  What we do here is have a user that is used as the  
owner of the share and a group that everyone who wants to access the  
share has to be part of.  In the config file for that share we have  
the following settings among others:

         valid users = @design
         write list = @design
         force user = design
         force group = design
         read only = No
         create mask = 0755
         directory mask = 06771
