Then we shouldn't use DeleteFile in the first place to delete the file,
but instead CreateFile, with DELETE access (and FILE_SHARE_DELETE
sharing). If that fails, we need to move the file to the bin
(see unlink_nt for details).

It certainly will help this case also. It would detect that the file is
still open, and move it into the trash bin.
