I've actually found that to be hit-and-miss with W98, hadn't noticed it with
XP, but then I guess I've been using the "Delete this file" button within
Explorer. The problem isn't that your file isn't being deleted, it's that
your explorer listing isn't being automatically refreshed when you drag the
file. I anxiously await some ideas here on fixing that ;-), but the
workaround is to simply hit your F5 button after your click-drag operations
to refresh your file listing. I think you'll find they're gone.
