   * Fixed crash on Windows due to file handle leak.
   Ticket #843. Cabal test crashed when trying to delete a temporary log
   because 'readFile' reads unnecessarily lazily and was keeping a file
   open during attempted deletion. This patch forces the entire file to be
   so the handle will be closed.
