After posting a file via an INPUT TYPE=file, Mozilla seems to keep the file
locked after the post operation completed. I was not able to delete the uploaded
file until I closed Mozilla.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a page where you can upload files, e.g. my homepage:
http://www.webwriters.de/mbirth/cgibin/getfile.cgi
2. Upload a file, wait until the upload completes
3. Try to delete the file from your harddisk, while Mozilla is still running

Actual Results:  
Error, because the file is locked by an application.

Expected Results:  
Release the lock after upload completes.
