xls file opens twice on startup in excel

           Summary: xls file opens twice on startup in excel
           Product: Cocoon 2
           Version: 2.0.4
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: sitemap components
        AssignedTo: cocoon-dev@xml.apache.org
        ReportedBy: aidan@johnstone.it


If the excel application is not already running, when I press an html button 
with an action such as anyfile.xls, this goes through a pipeline e.g 			
<map:match pattern="anyfile.xls">         				
<map:generate type="serverpages" src="anyfile.xsp"/>
<map:transform src="anyfile.xsl"/>
<map:serialize type="xls"/>
</map:match>
Excel opens the file twice, the first time normally, the second says the file is 
being used (by me) and offers the read-only options.
This bug does not occur when excel is already open and I press the button.  The 
bug does not occur when excel is closed and the command is typed directly into 
the address e.g. http://localhost:8080/cocoon/anyfile.xls - although the file 
is automatically read-only.
Although I'm not sure how this relates to the problem, it seems these files are 
occasionally save to a temporary file - C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local 
Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\XBXMYZ29.  This may be something 
to do with how temporary files are stored and may actually be an excel or 
windows bug :) - good luck
