[IPython-user] Unable to delete files accessed by iPython

Try the following:

f= open('junk','w')
f.write('testing')
f.close()
f

This last command should generate something like the following:
Out[4]: <closed file 'junk', mode 'w' at 0x023FEB18>

Then try to delete the file junk from outside Python.  This should work.
