          That happens to me occasionally.  When it asks me if I want to open it anyway, I click yes.  When I try to save, it will usually let me override the existing file with the same name.  I guess by then it thinks the imaginary other user has closed it.


          Occasionally it won't let me over-ride.  When that happens I save as... to a new name, but that doesn't happen very often.
