Race condition with data loss in ReadWritePart

I noticed a race condition with data loss in ReadWritePart:

Try to open a non-local-file from a slow or offline server. Then, instead of 
waiting for the file, just open another local file. Now, when you delete the 
part, the file is deleted(!).

If I see it correctly, this is because m_bTemp is set to "true" while opening 
the remote file. And when you open the local file it will not be set to false 

Kind regards
