[GRASS-dev] os.remove

Hi devs,

In the addon r.forestfrag (python script), I used os.remove() to remove 
some temporary files (in lines 230, 258 and 430). However, this fails in 
Windows, with an error message like below:

WindowsError: [Error 32] The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process: 'c:\\users\\uqdshana\\appdata\\local\\temp\\tmpwlv54l'

Removing these lines with os.remove() solves the problem, but than the 
user is left with these temporary files. Is there a Window compatible 
way to remove them in the script?
