RE: Edit file in RepoBrowser doesn

When selecting "Edit" in the repo browser a temporary working copy is created which contains the file to be edited. On finishing the edit the file will be comitted and the working copy removed. As long as the working copy exists additional Edit commands from the repo browser will be queued until the initial editing has been finished.

This behaviour is indepedent of locking.

The queuing is a bit unexpected and should be described in the help documentation.

It could be very helpful to implement at least a warning popup when someone tries to edit additional files. Since the temporary working copy is unique to the repo browser instance a detection of an additional edit should be quite easy to implement.
