I have just had another thought on this and wonder if anyone could 
confirm it: Shouldn't destruction of the parent IStorage object 
automatically destroy all IStream objects opened within it? This seems 
to be the way Windows works as far as I can tell so far. Wine does not 
do this, requiring all child IStreams to be closed before the final call 
to the destructor of IStorage will actually release the memory (and 
file) associated with it. Any ideas?
