SharePoint Server 2010 says "The file ... is locked for shared use..."

Environment: virtual servers under Hyper-V for lab and test purposes; just implemented, everything default: Windows Server 2008 R2 servers, SharePoint Server 2010, SQL Server 2008 R2, Exchange Server 2010, and Windows 7 with Office 2010.

Office 2010 doesn't work well with me, as I've asked about in another thread. Now I've created a Choice column in a content type for a document library. No fancy stuff and everything works. Aside of when I choose to edit the item/document, and change the choice column from A to B, then I get an error message:

The file [path] is locked for shared use by [me].

To my astonishment, googling this turns up nothing close to helpful; seems to be the first time it turns up in SharePoint. But surely it can't.

Anybody have a clue?

Hi,

Please checkout any backup services are running and locked the document library or site. If possible try to restart the SharePoint services.

Cheers,
AH
