Online edit hides all files from a directory?!?!?!

Hi all,

we're using Share as a collaboration platform and we ran into a strange behavior. We looked everywhere, but couldn't find a solution so a post here is in order.

The problem is that when someone starts Online Editing (without checking out the document) of an MS Office document (Word, Excel… version is 2003 SP3) then all documents in that folder where the file resides become invisible!?!? Both for that user and other users?! Folder is displayed as empty (folders and files are hidden) but the navigation bar is displayed, e.g.
1 - 4 of 4   << 1 >>

After the file is closed, the contents of the Document Library are displayed again.

Is this some sort of feature we don't understand? Is there a way to configure this? I'd like to give this collaboration platform to be used throughout our company, but with this behavior my only solution is to disable Online editing as a whole. And that would be a shame since it's a very interesting feature…

TIA!
