Description mikhail.voytenko 2009-03-11 12:52:31 UTC
It looks to make sense to allow to turn off the OOo file locking based on the lock file. In some cases ( for example network outage ) the lock file can not be removed. Additionally there are some exotic cases when a file can be created but can not be removed. From my knowledge it is possible only on Windows currently. Bases on the mentioned above it could make sense to allow to ignore the lock file. Showing the dialog that would allow the user to ignore the lock would probably be too much for a normal user. The decision should be taken by the system administrator or somebody who is skilled enough. Thus, we need the same solution as in case of turning off the system file locking. There should be an OOo-registry entry that would allow to turn lockfile-based locking mechanics off.

mav->tm: Please verify the issue. The OOo-locking mechanics can now be turned on/off using the configuration entry /org.openoffice.office.Common/Misc/UseDocumentOOoLockFile When OOo-locking mechanics is turned off, the lock file is still created, but only as a help-file. Existence of OOo-lock file does not prevent document opening in this mode. In addition to testing of this feature, please use the standard test-plan you have used to test OOo file locking.
