using FM 11 on Mac OS X 10.8 (Lion), I have problems with file locking for network accounts

(on local account there is no problem about that, but most of my customers have network accounts)


If users works on a network account, they cannot import images into container fields. Often a message pop up "the file is used by an other application or locked".

It looks that it has something to do with Lion feature of auto saving and automatically file locking after some time.

As it looks its a server problem with file locking (Server is Lion too).


Even if I switch of file locking (in Time Machine Options) the users cannot import images which the have just copied on their desktop.

I corrected all permissions (unix and ACL) on the user accounts, nothing helps.


Ideas would be welcome ;-)
