I've just run your test script a number of times and saw a failure a couple
of times. It's a race condition that is fixable.
The irritating thing that I noticed is that, despite returning an error,
WriteFile nevertheless still writes 64K of the data. That's pretty
annoying and is something that I have to fix.
