Maybe you can use Document Locking for this purpose. This will only work if all users use the same replica on the same server. What's your Domino release?

If it is R6.. Yes you can enable locking of the document using lock method for notesDocument. No more workarounds..

Read this article (http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/sandbox.nsf/ecc552f1ab6e46e4852568a90055c4cd/67efe21e3b05c1da85256b7a000caece?OpenDocument)  and also look for lock in help documentation for more details
