Resolution:

You can resolve this issue by performing the following:
  1. Open the StarTeam Cross-Platform Client.
  2. Choose Project | Properties | Options
  3. Uncheck ‘Mark unlocked working file read-only’
  4. Click OK
The issue is caused by the Web Edition identifying a file as being locked even though it is not yet added to the StarTeam project. This is planned to be fixed in a future release of the Web Edition.
