On windows release 7.12.2 after launching and quitting mged on a model. the file that was read and now should be released is not deletable/movable. Log out/in, then deletable/movable. Not a major problem, just an annoyance (so far).

On XP error box pops up entitled "Error Deleting File or Folder". Message in box is "Cannot delete <filename>: It is being used by another person or program. Close any programs that might be using the file and try again."

    How are you quitting mged? Does it still happen if you use one of the other ways to quit mged?

    Ways to quit include:
    Running the "quit" command on the mged command prompt
    Running the "q" command on the mged command prompt
    Closing the graphics window and the command window
    Running File -> Exit

    I was able to reproduce this bug on version 7.24.0, only when I quit MGED through by closing the graphics window and command window but the cmd window was open.Other method quitting works fine and file is unlocked
