I get the distinct impression that there's something wrong with your
computer's operating system! I've had no trouble writing extremely large
files with Rebol and immediately using the file. The only "trouble" that
I've had in this area is writing a large number of large files all at
once, when the operating system takes a while to show all the icons for
the files! But that's not the fault of Rebol.
I'd suggest that you look very closely at your computer virus checker,
as it could delaying the write of files while it scans for virii. I had
this problem with a virus scanner which persistently wanted to scan all
files that were being written; eventually I had to remove my virus
scanner because it grew incapable of handling the load.
