openoffice and word docs on nfs shares

Having solved the issue of mounting novell volumes using ncpmount, the next hurdle I face is the annoying bug that openoffice does not allow you to update word docs if you have file locking set to auto.
You can set file locking to no which means that other users can also open that same file on that share. This is not a desirable outcome. Openoffice are aware of this but do not seem to be addressing the issue.
Having built a new kernel from scratch I can confirm that it seems to be an application issue. With this in mind I have decided to remove my open office apps from my laptop and install staroffice. Hopefully this version will not have the same problem.
