Being the only one does not mean no oplocks are broken.
Excel as a sample application is very prone to do that. To
make 100% sure, you will need to look at the network trace
and look for locking&x calls from server to client without a
request. That's what I would look for next. But as you have
already done that I can't help anymore. Sorry.
