Subject Re: to delete windows build ?
Date Sat, 21 Nov 2015 14:13:15 GMT
Some background is in order here; there are several file handle
"leaks" that will actually lead to the file handle being closed in a
finalizer. Which is why "shaking" System.gc a couple of times with a
sleep/retry or two sometimes actually is effective if weird :)

Within shade I just fixed all of these leaks to use deterministic
closing of all resources, so nothing gets closed in finalizers any
more. To my understanding these calls to System.gc and any kind of
retry logic can just be removed. So IMI it's a no-brainer, but
sometimes there's more history behind such hacks...
