Bug? Rev app creates invisible files?

Has anyone else run into this with 2.9? Have you already BZ'd it?
I maintain an app that has an auto-update feature. It uses
libUrlDownloadToFile to download files from a server under temp names;
then it renames them to their correct names, replacing older files by
those same names.
The process works perfectly with the 2.8.1 engine (Mac & Win
standalones, Mac IDE) but not with 2.9.0 (tested in Mac IDE only). In
2.9.0 the newly downloaded & renamed files are invisible from the
Desktop! But they are there - my app couldn't start up without them.
I was able to make them visible by locating them on my local computer
with Interarchy and selecting "Reveal in Finder". That made them visible
from the desktop one by one as I selected them that way.
The phenomenon is not limited to files created with
libUrlDownloadToFile. It also happens when my app script puts test data
into url ("file:" & someFileName). The new text file is invisible from
Thanks everyone -
