This is really 6.4.1? We have made tons of fixes in 6.4.svn, if
you could update it would be cool and would either already
solve it for you are enable us to track it better down.

With "lsof" you could check who has opened the file (dunno where lsof
is on Mac), something like:

/usr/sbin/lsof /Users/kurtsprings/Document/wedge.db

The wxGUI Attribute manager has received fixes since 6.4.1.
