Bug report #17157
Georeferencer seems properly not to close the opened file handle after closing georef window, open a new file, even create new or open another project.
|Affected QGIS version:||3.4.4||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Windows 10 64-bit||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||25056|
How to reproduce:
1. Open Georeferencer.
2. Open a raster.
3. From this point, the file handles stay held forever until application exits.
- Reset georefence/open another file/close window/new project: don't affect existing of file handles.
- One can not move/rename/write the file.
This can be considered a minor pet peeve, when you want to move things around after that.
Release file handle on
- menu command
- close georeferencer window
would be convenient.

Please test with QGIS 3.4 - QGIS 2.18 reached it's end of life.
I confirm that QGIS 3.4.4 is still affected with this no-closing-file georeferencer issue.
Once a file get open in georeference. You can not modified the file until the whole application exits.
