File handles are synchronous by default. If you want asynchronous file handles, you need to pass the FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED flag when you create the handle. And all operations on a synchronous file handle are serialized. You'd think this was a simple and obvious rule, but "Someone" finds it "very surprising that operations can block which only handle file metadata."
