I am currently debugging a problem with locks on a file geodatabase for some functions that were done programmatically.  I notice there are ".sr" locks, which are schema locks, i.e. not change to the schema allowed.  There are ".ed" locks, edit locks, no edits on the data allowed.  There is another lock file, ".rd" lock, this one I am puzzled with.  Does anyone know what rd locks are?  The only mention it would be some unreleased cursor.  Still I would like to know if it puts an edit lock on the featureclass.
