I just used the Heatmap plugin to create a heatmap. Per Process Explorer, QGIS retains a lock on the file even when it's done creating the TIF.

Expected behavior: All locks are released on created items after they are created or that aren't currently in some kind of edit mode.

Turns out that QGIS in fact opened the heatmap as another layer immediately after creating the heatmap. It just took a long time to get it done and I didn't realize that was in progress.

Still, since QGIS was done writing to the file, the lock should be released so that I may open it in other programs.
