I think the nice timing is yours! But good news. It would have solved my
problems. But...

I've had to give up using the NAS as a communal tempdir. Not a Transient
problem. I've hit timing problems which cause an argument betwen LanMan98
and the NAS.

As we have several 'communal' data files, I've arranged a claim system,
operated by Obey files. The file to be claimed is first copied into the
claimer's private area om the server. Then the original is 'binned' (with
a sequential name), as a backup.

Problem is that it involves several stacked Obey files, first calling
several others. Or calling the same obey file several times in succession
with different files to be 'binned'.

At which point the NAS can either crash or sulk and not allow Lanman98 to
talk to it.

So I've gone back to local RISCOS tempdirs.

Tempdir never threw even a hiccough! Impressive!

Now I might be able to do something useful if TempDir could use a double
dustbin controlled by setting a SysVar. I'll have to investigate!
