Lock Files on Check Out. Please help

Could you please explain purpose of Lock Files on Check Out in starteam
plugin. Normally I do not do any EXPLICIT checkout where it would make sense
to lock something - I just let Selena refresh do its thing or refresh
project from VCS if need. So how does Lock Files on Check Out work?
Attempts to lock every file in a project every time I open it? It can't be.

I feel a far more useful would be to attempt to lock a file if I start
editing it from and it is not locked by me and in "VCS in synch state". At
the same time file system R/O flag should be handled

May be all this is already there and I am just missing it? Please advise.

Thank you
