#13 Odd problem

I use RC2 on WinNT with QuickLaunch on, so Mozilla is always running. I use IE as well. I do View Source on IE - it brings up the source in Notepad. I save the file with an .htm extention on the desktop. A while later (like 10-15 minutes) I try to delete it and it says that there has been a sharing violation (i.e. some other program is using file).

I used Handle by Sysinternals to find out which program has the file and it reports that Mozilla does. Somewhat stunned (since this file was not downloaded by Moz), I close Mozilla and voila - I can delete the file.

Can anyone explain this?
