The operation that's failing isn't atomic on Unix, either. What's really
killing us is that the process that's sniffing for file changes opens
the files in non-shared mode -- a concepta that doesn't exist on Unix --
and the fact that you actually have to open a file under the hood on
Windows to rename it.
