I have office web apps installed, everything works fine unless checkout is required on a document library, then I receive the error

"An error occurred while opening this document. To edit this document, open it in Microsoft Word."

Is this default behaviour, or do I have some configuration issue perhaps? SP and OWA are on SP1 and the June CU, using NTLM auth. The issue was also happening before the updates.
