The blue lock icon means that someone else has it locked -- which shouldn't
normally be able to coexist with the black lock icon meaning that you yourself
have it locked.  Is this a real "p4 lock" type lock or is
this a "+l" (exclusive open) file?  It's possible to get
around the "+l" type by explicitly opening it with a different
filetype so that your version of it doesn't have the exclusive flag.
