I did a quick check this morning about your assumption.
I wrote a short text file, gave it the name ".foo.txt"
and ... got exactly the same behaviour as with swapfiles
activated : the application crashes.
I also tried to change the name of an existing file to
".name.txt" using regular MAC OS features and I was
allowed to do it even though "DiskLock" was running.
So it really seems that it's the way VIM writes files
starting with a dot that creates the issue. Do we know
how "DiskLock" protects the disk access ?
