Vshpere build -force flag does not seem to clean up properly

I am running packer 1.8.0 on Centos7.

When building a template on vsphere with -force flag results I get the message:

the vm/template Packer-Windows-Server-2019 already exists, but deleting it due to -force flag

The build continues but instead of removing the folder, it leaves that folder in place with a single packer-tmp-created-floppy.flp file in it and creates the new template in a new _1 folder.

The new build folder does not contain that .flp file.

This is going to leave a lot of mess that will have to be cleaned up with regular deployments.

Any recommendations on how to have this clean up after itself?
