Unable to delete a project folder after the second instance of Unity tried to open it

To reproduce:
1. Open any project or create a new one
2. Open a second instance of Unity and attempt to open that project, click "OK" after getting an error
3. Close the first instance of Unity and try to delete the project folder
4. Observe the error

Expected result: After a Unity instance in which the project is opened has been closed, that project can be deleted
Actual result: The project can be deleted after the second instance of Unity is closed, even though the project is not opened there
