problem adding/renaming directory on server when connected via DreamWeaver

I have a JSP that allows a user to create a new directory on the server, place a file in it, and also rename/delete the directory. However, when I am connected to the server via DreamWeaver, often the directory won't get added or renamed, but when I'm not connected, it works fine. Does anyone know if this is to be expected, or should I be able to edit directories on the server via a JSP while connected via DreamWeaver?

Dreamweaver must be holding a lock on the folder somehow, blocking other processes from updating it. As to whether its expected - Dreamweaver is an awful product which tends to introduce project vagueries like this. It's best avoided in my experience, as it's no fun working on a project where you have to spend time debugging your development environment.

For curiosities sake, are you by chance working from an NT server?
