Hi Robert.

Thank you for the response. 

Helper.Unload () should be called at least once at the end, otherwise
some files are left on the disk. But as nunit has no global tear down
callback, probably the right time to call it is in fixture tear down.

To check your suspect about the relation between Unload and the hang
problem, I surrounded the Unload with Sleep. With 100 ms sleep I was
unable to reproduce the hang on linux. But on linux even without sleep
it's much harder to reproduce the hang than on cygwin. On cygwin even 2
seconds around unload were not enough. But even 100 milli before each
test were enough to make the problem disappear on my cygwin.
