I've mainly worked on solaris, now starting on linux.  It seemed like
the original poster said that some other unix flavors actually don't
do the rm if the file is in use.  I've used fuser on files to make
sure they are not in use before rm'ing, is there an alternate version
of solaris rm that'll automatically check for file handles?

Note:  the fuser trick doesn't seem to work on a clustered file system...
