Wow that was a quick reply! Thanks dd32 :) Actually, there is a warning, 
but only if two different users try to edit the same post. This does not 
apply if the same user is connected from two different places. I know, 
this looks weird, but since we have several users, I was thinking about 
creating three or four different users with different roles, and then 
share them among the editors :-)
