Its windows.  :-)

The plugin holds file descriptors open on recently accessed
pack-*.pack files, but otherwise is quite good at opening and
immediately closing any file it reads.

The plugin has a background thread which scans the repository state
periodically, so the resource annotations and such are current.
This scan opens $GIT_DIR/index for reading, and might also trigger
opening a blob if the index entry was racily clean.  Windows doesn't
allow a file to be deleted while its open for reading by another
program, so this can conflict with the command line tools.
