It's worse than that. Win32's filesystem doesn't permit renaming open
files, so the file must be closed, a delay must be added in during which
time the filesystem actually closes the file (which may be delayed due
to AV scanner hooks), and only then can you rename the file. This
usually means that the library must buffer lines during that little dance...
