This problem is mentioned every couple of years, e.g. back in July 2014 in bug report #42667 (9.2: Edwin still not opening files on Windows 7).

Unfortunately none of the active developers seems willing to take up support for Windows of any ilk, and the Windows development community... expects to be paid I suppose. :-}

How to reproduce the bug:
C-x C-f several files (5 or more, this is an estimate)
C-x k some of them
C-x C-f some other files

Happens on Windows 7 SP1 32-bits and Windows XP SP3, not sure if it happens in other versions.
