On the other hand, the first bug may have bad consequence (a feature not 
working),  while having the file left on the disk is not a critical issue 
since it will be removed on reboot on most of machines.

Also, the fact it will be noticed depends of how well the software is tested. 
The bug also depends of some border cases that doesn't appears always.

But for me, keeping Qt behavior, for consistency, is probably better.
