Saving properties reports: "File is already in use"

Hi folks,

when I make a change in the comment field and click "OK" (or "Apply") to save the changes, I often get the message "One file could not be updated: File is already in use". This happens especially with bigger mp3 files (80 MB and more). I have to click OK many (say: many many) times until it finally works.

I am using foobar2000 1.6.2 on Windows 10 2004 (64 bit, SSD). This also happened with earlier versions.

Is this a known issue?

It seems that I have to wait until foobar2000 has completely determined the waveform and updated the wavecache.db file.
