I am looking for a way to detect edit locks on a file geodatabase.  Basically what I want to know is if there is another process that has an edit session in another instance of arcmap on that datatabase.  schema locks are ok, I am not editing the schema.  What happens now is I get an exception when I try to update the annotation featureclass.  I want to know before I start the process that there is an edit session open.  IWorkspaceEdit.isbeingedited returns false...
