Saving MS Office files on CIFS breaks check-out locks

Hello,

When I edit on CIFS a Working Copy of an MS Office file that's been checked out, after I save the file the lock for the original file is automatically removed and there is no way to check-in the working copy. I read somewhere in the forum that this can happen to files when the editor is creating a copy with the same name on saving. But why is this happening with MS Office? Is the problem with my Office or with my Alfresco installation?

My setup: Alfresco Ent 3.2r on CentOS 5.5, Windows 7, MS Office 2007

Best regards
