Someone recently reported that Chat creating URLs in the Journal for
Browse had broken at some point, because it was using $SAR/tmp, but
$SAR/instance works fine.

Read also uses instance when it creates an entry for a document you
receive in a shared session - and removes it during write_file if we
are closing.

So use instance, but remove the file when you are done.
