I have strange behaviour with file locking when xls file are accessed by LibreOffice and Excel.

   * user A with Excel 2000
   * user B with LibreOffice 3.3 / OpenOffice 3.2

Step to reproduce:

   * user A open, modify,save and close "example.xml" file with Excel 2000
   * user B open "example.xml" with LibreOffice 3.3
   * user A open "example.xml" and Excel tell the user that file is
     opened by user A (expected: user B)
   * user A open "example.xml" with LibreOffice and the program tell
     the user that file is opened by user B (as expected)

Users may be confused by this messages. Is a bug or a well know behaviour?
