We introduced osl_replaceFile in, which is designed to 
minimize the overhead when replacing the target - so that it's still 
possible to create a temporary file next to the destination, and then 
make a cheap replacement. Is the problem that the initial place of 
creation of the temporary file is somewhere else, not next to the target?
