I believe Eryk's explanation on how a file in Windows doesn't actually get unlinked until all handles and kernel pointer references are closed is spot on about the problem I had.

I had a complex example that could probably have been simplified to what Eryk posted.

That behavior on Windows is quite counterintuitive. I'm not sure about what can be done to help it.
