"Suicide" is a dramatic word bit I see Flynn's point and tend to agree with him about it.

No doubt there's much more about tis sort of thing in the "Sticky Thread of Doom" even if most of that is about Ghosts rather than SAIs.
The fairly old VALENTINA: SOUL IN SAPPHIRE novel gets around this by having infomorphs spin off non-sapient partial images to scout into dangerous areas and send back memory frames
