Yes, it does. By chance, I just happened to be logged on to the machine
where this is an issue and noticed the last two files I'm serialising with
PID. The earlier one has 32766 as a serial number and the later has 413.
These files were not intended to last very long. However due to a change in
plans they'll be around for a while, so I'll have to go back to the drawing
board for a minute or two.
