NIS locks files during applications
NIS locks files many times during running applications. For example, a temp file might be created which is to be moved to a new named file -- and the file cannot be moved. Or, a file might have to be created during a standard compliation and permission is denied (a problem I just had with ccrypt.sourceforge.net whrn trying to complie under Cygwin on my Thinkpad running XP Pro SP3). If I disable Auto-Protect I have no problems. Is there any setting less severe to stop this kind of interference?
