Warning: Could not edit the data in the folder or database you selected

Enterprise geodatabase with versioned data
Oracle 11g, ArcSDE 10.0 sp4 ArcGIS Desktop 10.2

Direct connect as user with edit permissions to data, to a version the user owns. Can view data. There are logfile tables in the user's schema (checked with SQL Developer.) 
Nothing else is open on client computer.
No other gis users are connected to this geodatabase (checked with sdemon)
Client computer has been restarted.
The feature dataset, a feature class, and several tables are part of a replica between default on this geodatabase and a version on another geodatabase.

In map with all replicated data, when user tries to start editing a line feature class that is in the feature dataset with a topology, get error:
"Warning: Could not edit the data in the folder or database you selected
The layer or table is in use, being edited, or otherwise unavailable for editing.
Solution: Make sure no other users are accessing or editing the data. If you have other ArcGIS applications, open, close them and try to edit the data again."

In brand new map with same user, and version, with only the one feature dataset, get this error:

"Warning: Can't edit versioned workspace, check that you have proper permissions on the version
You are attempting to edit data in an ArcSDE geodatabase but lack permissions to do so.
Solution: Contact your ArcSDE administrator to ensure that you have permissions to edit the data."

The data owner user can start an edit session on the same data, via the same (public) version, with no error message (no actual edits were done, however.)

What to look at next? Generally we do not like to do edits as the data owner, or to public versions.
