It is evidently not possible to disable file locking under Windows at this point. There are also a few different problems with file locking under Windows, some of which are context-dependent e.g.,

  • fdo#43883, LibO started via Windows Explorer does not release lock on directory when file is closed.
  • fdo#63995, MSO XML documents are locked longer than expected.
  • fdo#72157, not release WebDAV file lock on document close.

Note that fdo#41442 is an enhancement to make the file locking options more readily accessible.
