Lightroom Classic 8.4.1 is starting even thou there is a saved [My catalog].lrcat.lock next to [My catalog].lrcat.
I know the .lock-file is supposed to protect the catalog file from beeing opened by someone else. If a .lock-file with the same name as the catalog file is stored in the same folder, I should have to delete the .lock-file before I can open the catalog file. Now, I am able to open the catalog file without deleting the .lock-file. I have seen this before, and a few other users have reported the same behavior in a user forum I am hosting in Norway. So I had to test, and I could also see Lightroom opening the catalog file with a .lock-file next to the catalog file. How can this be? Is it a bug or a non-documented feature?
