Description chojin 2009-06-03 08:19:02 UTC
When a user has read-only rights on a file and that user tries opening the file
in OOo 3.1, it says the file is already opened and locked by an unknown user.
This is a wrong message and confuses users. 
In this case OOo should tell the user the file is opened read-only because of
missing rights (like it was done before 3.1) and not because it is locked by an
unknown user. (because then users start to call the IT helpdesk, asking who that
unknown user is, and what he is doing with that file..)

Comment 5 mikhail.voytenko 2009-06-04 13:09:35 UTC
The similar problem was fixed for the issue 99967 already for OOo3.1, and
actually the OOo3.1 reacts correctly on read-only documents. The problem here is
that office does not recognized that the document is read-only.

The specialty of this scenario is that "Security" tab page contains rule that
denies Write, but in the "General" tab-page the Read-only attribute is not set.
This situation is only possible on Windows platform as I understand. Setting the
OS field accordingly.

If there is another scenario to reproduce the problem, please publish it here.
Comment 6 mikhail.voytenko 2009-09-22 11:07:36 UTC
This issue does not look for me as a showstopper for OOo3.2. From other side,
formally speaking, it could be treated as a regression ( it is not a direct
regression, because the code that has detected that the file is readonly was
always broken, it just was not necessary to use it before ).

So, please fill free to report this bug as a showstopper in, if you believe that it should definitely be fixed in

If the issue is not recognized as a showstopper, I will set the target to OOo3.3
next days.
Comment 7 mikhail.voytenko 2009-10-08 16:54:03 UTC
The solution will need an enhancement in the implementation, that detects
whether a file is readonly. I will start with this issue a little bit later,
since currently there are more important showstoppers to solve.
Comment 8 mikhail.voytenko 2009-11-06 15:06:04 UTC
Fixed in cws fwk125.
Comment 9 mikhail.voytenko 2009-11-06 15:17:42 UTC
The mentioned fix fixes only the described problem.
The general solution to support ACL will be implemented for OOo3.3 for issue 106648.
