Please use the handleex tool, available from sysinternals.com, to verify which process
is holding these files open.  We should have _no_ shell-dependent code, and strictly
bind to kernel32, user32, wsock32, advapi32, ws2_32, msvcrt and our own win9xconhook.
I certainly cannot reproduce on WinNT/2K.

Are you linking in _any_ third-party modules that aren't distributed with the
official Apache 1.3 series installer, perhaps java?
