Read-only files in #804 / MacOS X


Hi,

In Idea 2.6 If a file was read-only, a little lock appeared on its tab, and you could not insert text in the file. If you 'cvs edit'ed it, or simply changed the permissions to read/write, Idea would notice very quickly, and make the file in the editor window editable.
This no longer happens in any of the Ariadna release I have tried; indeed if a file is marked read-only and then changed to read-write, closing and reopening the file in Idea will not make it writable; you have to shut down and restart Idea, which is not very satisfactory.
Has nobody else noticed this, or am I missing a very obvious fix?

Thanks,

Tim
