I assume this type of thing can lead to data loss and/or hard to 
diagnose corruption. If you are running into sharing violations then try 
out the file system API as the Windows provider opens files by default 
to allow delete access (ie: close to Unix semantics by default with 
provider specific options to control the DOS sharing mode if you really 
want). The only case where we still have a problem is memory-mapped 
files. Changing the long standing behavior of the java.io classes is 
another matter as that would likely break existing applications that 
rely on the current/long standing behavior.
