Zip files left behind from Bursting Program

Bursting program leaves zip file in concurrent request output directory


We have several XML Publisher jobs which burst the output to recipients via email.  During the bursting process (XDOBURSTREP), it seems to be zipping up the output of the XML Publisher job (which in our case is always PDF) into a zip file with the name of "o" + <Request Id of Burst Request> + ".zip"  and placing this zip file in the concurrent request output directory.  From a few mentions I have found online, it looks like this is supposed to be temporary during the burst process.

Now in many of the cases (about 33%), the zip file is NOT deleted after the bursting job is finished - so the zip files remain in the concurrent request output directory.  In the other 2/3, the zip file IS deleted after the bursting job is finished.

Howdy, Stranger!
