Borland C++ 5.0 and readonly src files

In the Borland IDE the compiler says it can't open my source files.  This occurs when they reside in readonly form, which is part of a configuration control system.  Why would the compiler need anything but read access to the source files?  By the way, if I double click on a source file in the project window it brings it up fine in the editor!  Is this a bug?  Is there a way to work around this?

Thanks for the suggestion, white wolf.  I have already reported this to Borland.  I don't really care about credit, I just want it to work!

I'm using Borland C++ 5.01 and I tried to reproduce the error.

- I marked my source files (*.cpp) as readonly
- I opened them and compiled them without any error message

You should apply all patches available under "http://www.borland.com/devsupport/borlandcpp/patches.html", or upgrade to BC 5.01.

Thanks for the suggestion markusk, but I am using BC 5.01.  I should have mentioned this.  I should also have mentioned that the readonly files are on a unix server that I am accessing like a local drive via NT.  Perhaps BC++ is having a problem with this networked drive and it is not a readonly problem at all.  I will check into this and get back with you.
