There seems to be a severe bug in the new 6.15 file handling (temp
files and backup files).
If the user running VEDIT only has got the right to modify the file to
be edited but not the rights to rename the file (or to create files in
that directory) VEDIT kills that file!
I'm working as standard user (in Windows2000) and I want to edit the
The Admin has set C:\Winnt as read-only for normal users, but the file
test.ini itself is allowd to be modified (Full access for everyone).
Opening that file with VEDIT looks normal in the first place.
But trying to save it after editing gives the error messages
CANNOT CREATE BACKUP FILE

The new Config(F_TEMP_DIR, "Temp file directory") seems to have no
influence on that problem: The file is always gone.
I tried the same with VEDIT 6.13.
In this case the file is opened in read-only mode automatically (what
is wrong, but safer.)
(BTW: Notepad is able to edit that file.)
