package / filesystem bug

I did the following:
extract some sources from a zip file so that they are
on the filesystem in e.g. d:/work/math/...

Then create an IDEA project around it, with srcdir=d:/work

ok, then the package structure did not match filesystem.
correct is e.g. abc/def/someothermiddlepackage/math/...
so I did create package from IDEA (which is convenient when
you write abc.def.someother..., to create multiple packages at once).

Then I move the source files from math to abc/def/...
so that they are in the correct place.

So far so good, IDEA notices the changes.

Then I delete a few source files from IDEA (alt-f1,
show in project view, delete).
And one file just refuses to get deleted!
The editor gets closed, it disappears from project view,
but it stays on filesystem!!!!

should at that it happens both in Pallada and also in 4.0

I have that behaviour in Windows every now and then when another process still has the file locked, most often the Windows explorer.
A hard way to ensure that there are no locks is to use the ProcessExplorer from www.sysinternals.com and do "Search -> Find" for the file name and release the file locks explicitly.
(Do that on your own risk. Must have administrator rights.)
