Ok, problem lies in ZedGraph? (the graph UI control that we use) and a flaw in EMF (Enhanced Metafile Format) image saving.

Symptoms:
Save an EMF file once and it works ok. In the SAME session, attempt to overwrite the earlier written EMF file with a new file and the attempt fails. The file also cannot be deleted with Windows Explorer because it is still 'in use'

Cause:
ZedGraph? writes the first EMF file ok, but then refuses to release the file handle. While the EwE session that wrote the file is active the file is locked; any overwrite attempts, file delete, file move or file rename attempts will fail.

I've fixed the bug in the ZedGraph? source code after builds May 17 2009
