we are testing OS X Server (10.8.1) and have found a strange error while using TextEdit.

Configuration: Mac mini (mid 2010) with OS X Server 10.8.1 (clean install), providing DNS, OD Master, AFP

iMac (2010 - i3) with OS X Client 10.8.1 (clean install)

I'm logging in as a network user with my home folder on the server (network home using AFP). Everything seems fine with a strange exception. TextEdit is unable to save anything. When I try to invoke the save dialog with a new file (either by Cmd-S, or by closing the window), nothing happens, but TextEdit hangs for a while and Console reports:

29.8.2012 15:15:03,535 TextEdit[970]: RVS:__54-[NSRemoteSavePanel _runOrderingOperationWithContext:]_block_invoke_0315 : Timeout occured while waiting for the window

Sometimes (but I'm not able replicate this all the time) an element from the save dialog (e. g. a checkbox) appears in the bottom left corner of the screen (without the enclosing dialog window and not working anyway).

The same error appears in Pixelmator. This may be a problem with Versions, but other apps, which are using Versions (e. g. Preview, Pages) do work correctly.

Does anyone know what the matter is?
