Error opening in-use text file

    Since upgrading to Parallels 6 (from 5), I can no longer open a log file that is in use from Mac OS. I was doing this fine before the upgrade. Now, when I try, I first get a dialog asking for my password. Then, it fails to open. In BBEdit, I get this error: You do not have sufficient privileges to perform this operation (MacOS Error code: -5000). If I try to access the file with the UNIX tail command (and using "sudo"), I get /private/tmp/1074/C/[...]/logs/service.txt: Permission denied.

    I can open the same file from Windows with no problem.
    I have checked permissions from Mac OS.
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled Parallels Tools.
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled Parallels 6.

    Any suggestions?
