No, the problem I try to avoid is
* you create a file
<virus scanner opens the file to verify that it is not a virus>
* you delete the file (after the virusscanner releases the file)
* you rename a file to be at the old location

While we really need something like
* rename to a unique name.
<virusscanner ignores the file, because it was already scanned at the original location>
