Yes, that is a good idea and along the lines of what I was thinking.

I see, from the rest of the discussion, that you have at least alleviated the problem. But, allow me to shoot one more idea at you.

If it were me, I think I would put the 'good' files in a spool folder, and then have a separate spool consumer that spins up the 
processing with the GUI monitoring, pulling the files out based on timestamp. If storing the files locally may subject them to 
disclosure, perhaps setting the permissions on the spool directory to 600 for specific user(s) might suffice to prevent it.
