This is a static dump of issues in the old "Flyspray" bugtracker for DokuWiki. Bugs and feature requests
are now tracked at the issue tracker at Github.
Not a bug
If one user edits a page, a lockfile is created.
If this user opens another browser on the same machine an visits the page (while still editing in the other window), the lockfile is removed.
This leads to a "last-writer-wins" condition.
This is not a bug but how the locking mechanism works. If the user views the page it is assumed he no longer edits it and the lock is released (this is what happens when the page is saved or editing is canceled). BTW. the ajax background locking will regain the lock pretty quickly when the user continues to edit in your mentioned scenario.
