The problem is the mere act of observing can cause the problem on
Windows... and it's not limited to automated programs.  What if a
sysadmin executes something that looks at the index files - perhaps a
find or ls with the right params could trigger it.

Since we can't fix this problem, only make it less likely, maybe we
should also put something in the FAQ about avoiding even looking at
index files on Windows.
