yes it locks it. But normally the client app stays connected. If you want to
continually disconnect/reconnect to let others get access, then you still
have a brokering problem since no client will know when it's their turn to
try. They will keep trying until another user disconnects. Pretty boring
performance issues there.
Anyway it can't happen since embedded will not allow it. You'll have to
think of anohter solution. (Like a server install - hey)
