By default, the 2.0 versions come with SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING enable.
This is great for local file systems, but on NFS they tend to crash OOo.

Later NFS versions - 4.0 - support file locking with lockd, I think it's better
to have some kind of code to use this, instead of using it by default and
causing crashes.

TM->requirements: Having file-locking enabled by default is not a bug. That this
can lead to crashes wasn´t reproducible. A change in the file-locking feature or
it´s implementation might be a wish for an enhancement, so please have a look.

This bug is reproducable in a lot of OpenOffice (beta) 2 versions on Suse 9.3
and Suse 10. It can be reproduced on Suse 10, with OpenOffice 2.0.0-0.2
(installed with apt),
