Description dlt101 2013-05-28 16:37:21 UTC
Problem description: 
After closing a document, you cannot change the name of the directory that contains the document. Windows says that a file is in use.

Steps to reproduce:
1. open document
2. close document
3. in file explorer attempt to edit directory name. produces error.
4. exit LibreOffice
5. directory name can now be edited.

Current behavior:
Error: Cannot change name because file is in use

Expected behavior:
Should allow directory name to be changed.

( I think this may be related to the problem I've seen reported where file explorer hangs up from time to time )
Operating System: Windows 8
Version: release
