Sounds like something has an open file handle, that is not being closed
until the object is garbage-collected and its finalizer is called.
Check to make sure that you're properly closing all files, writers, streams,
etc. that you open. Take particular care to check exception exit paths,
e.g., if an exception is thrown (and silently gobbled up by something else,
possibly), is the close() still happening.
