GRASS Plugin: error deleting vector file

Added by Roy Roge over 5 years ago. Updated over 5 years ago.

If you load a vector layer from GRASS DB in QGIS Layers Panel,
then you remove it from the panel, still it is impossible to
delete the vector from GRASS DB using the Browser Panel delete function.

Step to reproduce:

- Load a vector file in a GRASS mapset using v.in.ogr,
- press View output to load the vector in QGIS,
- remove the vector from QGIS Layers Panel
- In the Browser panel right click the vector and choose "delete"

the vector file is not deleted and the geometry is corrupted
making the file unusable

maybe the issue is only on windows ?

In fact, close map code was commented, which resulted in keeping the file open and impossibility to delete the vector on Windows.

I have re-enabled closing map. There was a comment about possible dead-lock, but that was from early stages of the provider overhaul, so I hope it is OK now.
