ROOT stalling while closing a file

Dear all,

    I have a file where a TObjArray of 160000 TH1F is stored (~3.3 MB). When I try to retrieve the array, and then close the file, root stalls. root [0]

root [0] TFile *file = new
TFile("$ALICE_ROOT/TOF/DELAYS/MON/file1.root","READ") root [1] TObjArray * array =(TObjArray*)file->Get("ciccio") root [2] array
(class TObjArray*)0xa836050
root [3] file->Close()
and here it stalls....
It stalls even if I use the "OPEN" option for the file, if i first delete and set to null the pointer to the array, and if, instead of closing, i try to delete the file. Do you know why this happens? I am using the latest ROOT version, v5-13-02, gcc 3.4.4, Scientific Linux SL release 4.2.

Thank you a lot.
