Subject [jira] Closed: (IO-17) [io] delete in FileUtils sometimes fails on Windows
Date Sun, 17 Sep 2006 10:45:25 GMT
     [ ]

Stephen Colebourne closed IO-17.

    Fix Version/s:     (was: 1.3)
       Resolution: Won't Fix

The general agreement here is that this is a bad idea. Also, I can find no Sun bug database
report logging this issue (although there are various related misconceptions).

Thus, I'm closing as WontFix. Please reopen if there is a Sun bug database report, or a reproducible
test case can be created.
