If you're on windows that's presumably the same situation as for old index 
files of a non compound index after optimization.
The files cannot be deleted as long as they are open by a searcher.
So lucene has to delay the deletion, which I guess deletetable is used
On unix/linux you shouldn't see the old files anymore, though they are still
there (the files which are independet from the directory entries), and will be 
removed by the system, when they are closed by the last process that had
them open.
