That's the intended behavior.

That's not true, this works like that since file locking was ported to
Windows more than a year ago.  I just tried that in a very old build,
and saw exactly what you describe, as expected.

Unless you didn't describe the recipe in enough details, that is.

Indeed, this is a new feature (on Windows) in Emacs 24.4.  On other
platforms, Emacs behaved like that since a very long time ago.
etc/NEWS tells how to turn this feature off, if you don't want it.
