Generally everything that touches the disk, is dangerous. [sssad]
doesn't touch the disk at all, so it's not guilty here. ;)

I would recommend to preload all textfiles that should be streamed to
[sssad] into memory. You don't need a ramdisk for that, just enough
textfile objects. Those come cheap.
