3.2beta5 directory handle left open

View a message, save it to a folder, close the message window
try renaming the folder -> error "locked by another process"

using procexp.exe to find out which program holds the directory handle open yields poptray.exe

I think you'll find most applications behave like this, including Outlook, Thunderbird, etc....

Maybe so, though I use some applications that don't do that.
I think it's a bug because in this case it hinder managements of saved messages. It would be much better if PopTray let go of the folder where it just stored a message, so a user could then rename/move the folder with Explorer, if desired.
