Transcendence doesn't seem to like running in dropbox, while I've never had issues with any other program writing files in it. Its as if its unable to maintain a usage lock on the file. This error occurs while downloading tdbs, and beta 4 seems worse than betas 1/2/3 at it.

I'll add some sharing flags to allow the file to be opened even if others are trying to read it. Thanks!
