problem updating the read-only files!

I have many java files into the src which are locked by other developers,
therefore the java file are read-only to me. When I checkout a new version
of a java file from starteam (external from intellij) which is locked by
another developer, that file does NOT updated into the IntelliJ => still the
old file is displayd in intellij editor! I close the tab editor, I open
again that file and still the old file is displayed! (note: although the *
appears, which indicates me that the file needs to be saved because it has
been changed!)
That is a very important issue once we can not work on a project which is
developed by many people.
thanks for your time.

Do you use Aurora or Ariadna? What would happen if you would manually change
the R/O attribute of the file? What is your OS?

Ariadna had not problem in that case. This problem occured on Aurora
build804 (I haven't tryed it on build802).

>What would happen if you would manually change the R/O attribute of the

-If I manually change the file from read-only to read and then checkout the
(new)file from starteam... it works ok. (the problem occurs when the file is
read-only)

-If I checkout a read-only file and then chage it to read (still the old
file is shown to me) and says that it needs to be saved but the save action
is not working (the * from the tab editor is still there)... if i edit the
file then it can be saved. (but note the checkout file never downloaded into
my src dir)
