Deleting (recently mounted & unmounted) image file does not free up space
|Reported by:||psycho_killer||Owned by:||nobody|

After having mounted and unmounted a BFS image file the space occupied by the file is not freed when the file is deleted.
Take note of the amount of free space on your Haiku volume.
Expand i.e. this file: http://haiku-files.org/files/blank-bfs/blank-bfs-512mb.image.zip
then mount it (doubleclick in Tracker), unmount it (through Tracker)
Delete the image file
Observe free space on volume, the 512 MB is not freed, not even after reboot.
R1/alpha (Revision 32945)
On real hardware: 512 MB of memory, 640 MB swap, partition ~2.5 GB
Tested the same file in BeOS R5, space was freed up afterwards.
