No - the current incarnation of WebFolders (Microsoft's product)
does not deal with locking. Office 2K does (it locks a document
while editing it). Zope currently "fakes" locking support as an
unofficial measure to allow folks to open O2K docs stored in Zope.
We faked it partly because there was (even fairly recently) some
disagreement in the DAV group about how locking ultimately should
work, and partly because DAV clients haven't exactly taken the
world by storm at this point and that has to be reflected in our
priorities. Note that even if locking were supported on the Zope
side, I don't think that this would help your situation since
WF will not lock an object just because you dragged it to your
local desktop. AFAIK, O2K will only lock something if you open
it directly with O2K.
