Well, it sounds like mv might be the solution to this problem. As soon as the file
shows up in the share, mv it to a directory that the users can't get to. I
tried mv'ing a file, and it maintained the same permissions as the original
user, which means, hopefully, that the user can keep saving even if the file
is not done when it is mv'ed and it is in a different directory.
