Anyone with deeper knowledge on FS code able to  
have a look at issue 6531 - "Not possible to save one click 
image on Windows"


I found the original cause - it crashes since the code 
will open the changes file for a second time.
The reason is that FileStream(class)>>onHandle: 
will not really work on an existing handle - and instead
opens the file again. It's easy to debug (see the bug entry
what to evaluate in a workspace).

I'm not that familiar with the design and implementation 
of the new file system. To me it looks like it is not 
a bug but merely just unfinished in the transition from
new to old filesystem.

Maybe someone with better knowledge of the intentions 
of the new file system can help fixing it - and assure 
it works on all platforms afterwards. Thanks in advance!
