WebDAV and Microsoft Office Applications

Okay, I know this has been pondered before. But the last information I can
find about it on this list was about a year ago. I'm curious if anyone has
had any luck with this issue.

When Microsoft Office applications run, they create temp files. Is there a
way on the repository to keep these temp files from being created. It is
kicking my WebDAV repository users in the butt every time they try to edit a
Microsoft Office document by setting the document to 'Read-Only'. It's not
so bad with Windows users, because they can delete the temp file. However,
for the Mac OS X users it is not so easy.

There was talk at one time about a pre-commit hook script that denied them.
I've tried that, but it doesn't seem work (Than again I may have scripted it
wrong as well.)

Are there any other options? Anything else to try?
