I'm not sure that this is the right place to ask about this, but one
of my users is having a problem with her files,specifically excel
files which she is editing with openoffice.
I suspect that she is closing down her PC without logging out or
something and so appears to be still logged in.
She is using Vista and the server is a Debian Lenny box.
Whenever she tries to access the files on the server the file is
apparently "locked for editing by unknown user".
I cannot find any .~ lockfiles and rebooting both machines does not
The permissions are set to 777 and the owner of the files is this
As I say, I'm assuming this is a Samba issue.
Can anyone suggest a way to resolve this?
