I've never tried to setup field level permissions on access linked
tables before, so this is news to me.  However, I wonder if this
behavior is a result of the way MS-Access implements optimistic
locking.  I'll have to do more digging on this subject.

This is correct.  This is the way it is documented to work since '*'
expands to list every field of the set.
