When using emacs 24 w/tramp on remotely RCS-controlled files, the toggle-read-only function (^X^Q) does not issue the usual "This file is under version control, blah, blah".
Instead it flips the read-only permissions without checking out the file. This is catastrophic, as the next checkout will overwrite changes etc.
How do I get the standard behavour?
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-q" 'vc-toggle-read-only)
which does not really address the issue.
To clarify: I want to have the version control warning when editing remote files - I currently get nothing.
