CONIME.EXE bug causing misleading Vista error message (days after running console-mode C# pgm)

MC
I had 2 folders I couldn't move or delete. Each had contained the
executable from a console-mode Visual Studio 2008 C# application. On trying
to move the folders I got the entirely misleading UAC pop-up

"You'll have to provide administrator permission to move to this folder"

and on giving permission, the operation nonetheless failed. On trying to
delete them I was told a file was still open, although in one case I had
already moved the files out one by one.

Process Explorer told me that CONIME.EXE had the "Debug" folder open. So I
killed CONIME.EXE and all was well.

I assume CONIME is Console Input Method Editor. Shouldn't it quit when the
application exits, rather than continuing to hold the folder handle open for
days?

Is this a Vista bug or a .NET 3.5 bug? I'm thinking possibly both, since
given the nature of the problem, Vista was displaying a highly misleading
error message.

I don't know if you've found a bug or not but a quick Google search of
conime.exe turned up this (note the part about it being part of a
backdoor tool):

"Windows errors related to conime.exe?

conime.exe is a part of the the Microsoft Windows Operating System and
is essential for the secure and safe operation of your computer.. This
process is used when a Asian laguage is used in Windows.

Note: conime.exe could also be a process which is registered as the
Input Method Editor Remote administration backdoor tool. This backdoor
application can allow attackers to access your computer, stealing
passwords and personal data. This process is a security risk and
should be removed from your system.

Note! If your system is using a non western language this can be a
legitimate entry."
