We are only supposed to be called if the file is read only. This filtering

OK, this problem also existed with earlier versions of RSA. That is why we
had the explicit check to see if the file really was read only. In theory,
we should not have even needed that as we are not supposed to be called if
it is not read only. I always just assumed that RSA was somehow calling the
team provider directly and not going through the proper API. I now think
the problem is something else. I think that RSA must be telling Eclipse
that the IFile for one of these files is read only. That would explain why
it gets past the Eclipse filtering. As part of the change in 1.1.9, I
copied some code out of Team core that checks if the file is read only.
This is using the IFile#isReadOnly method. The earlier code was using the
method from java.io.File, which would be looking at the actual file system.
So I think we just need to change that one method to use File instead of
IFile. I have committed a change that does this if you would like to update
and test it.
