    Sorry that should have been `buffer'.

I also meant `buffer'.

    If the file is indeed read-only, then everything works as expected,
    but the VC code also tries to make the buffer read-only when the file
    is locked by someone else and yet is writable.

I think that is correct--and useful.  If VC is mistaken, you can use
C-x C-q to make the buffer writable.
