Or even better; FB comes up with a non-modal window that informs you that
your resource file is in use, and gives you two options: Continue, Stop. At
that point you switch to resedit, close the resource, go back to FB, hit
"Continue", and FB goes ahead and tries to get the resource file again...

Simple, no?
