WebDAV read-only issue

In the Subversion book under appendix 3 (Autoversioning Interoperability) there is a line describing a problem opening files to edit from a Webfolder (or directly from Office application).

<snip from subversion book>
"""A file can't be opened for direct editing from the share; it always comes up read-only. The mod_dav_lock technique doesn't help, because WebFolders doesn't use the LOCK method at all. The previously mentioned “copy, edit, re-copy” method does work, however. The file on the share can be successfully overwritten by a locally edited copy."""

Does anyone have more info on this ? The funny thing is that we've been using this for quite some time but since approximately a year back in time windows users have been complaining about not being able to edit files directly. Still, some users can actually edit documents while others get a read-only copy which can't be stored back to the server.

Can anyone share some light upon this issue ?

Best Regards,
Marcus Kovacs
