The directory is still locked, and an error is given.

Duplicated/Confirmed with build 680m77.

1. Opened an Impress document in c:\folder1. There were no other OpenOffice.Org
application windows open.
2. Closed Impress document.
3. Attempted to renamed c:\folder1 to c:\folder2, and get an error message:

Title: Error Renaming File or Folder

"Cannot Rename folder1: It is being used by another person or progam.
Close any programs that might be using the file and try again."

Is this the Autorecovery process holding some sort of connection to the file open?

Additional update from erzielin's previous entry today. The parent directory is
still locked several hours later, even though all instances of OOo applications
were closed with the exception of the Quickstarter.
Comment 3 erzielin 2005-02-18 19:20:09 UTC
This appears to be a rather serious problem, since the OOo application is
interfering with the file system even when there are no documents open (i.e.
they have been closed).
