This is not true. A file that is held open by a process but had all
its names removed (link count is zero) has no name. This should be
known by all Unix admins.
Situations with nameless files often happens when a process creates a
quickly growing logfile and an admin removes the logfile in an attempt
to free up disk space. The file will continue to exist, and grow,
nameless until the process closes the file or dies.
