Comment(by annakrat):

 I am still having this issue, even after OS changed to Windows 8.
 Moreover, I saw this happening on one other Windows 8 computer.

 Yesterday, I realized a similar behavior when working with mask,
 specifically when creating inverse mask during clean up when g.remove is

 Debug output showed that some of the files of the raster were removed but
 then it was waiting for a minute or so to delete the rest. I repeated it
 several times, some times it went through without problems sometimes it
 took too long. I have never had problems with deleting rasters before.

 This is really frustrating. Anyone has any idea what would be the possible
 cause of this? Or has anyone experienced this behavior?
