[GRASS-dev] Overwrite GRASS raster on Windows

I found a strange (but desired) thing. I can overwrite a GRASS raster
layer which is open in QGIS on Windows (NTFS). It should not be possible
because it is not possible to delete/move a file which is open
by another application on Windows. And AFAIK it was not possible some
month ago.
Now I can overwrite an open raster without problems on XP Professional SP2.
I cannot delete the file from file manager but I can see that the time
was updated
if a GRASS module was run!!!
Can you confirm, explain?
