Cool, thanks.  But we should better test this first before you send this
upstream.  I'm not entirely sure if my explanation is correct.  I tried
various different ways to delete the file but none worked.  Every
method, even just using delete-on-close, returns the *very* *helpful*
STATUS_CANNOT_DELETE message.  The open file mapping looks like the only
possible explanation but I couldn't find any documentation which
supports my theory, now that I'm searching for it...
