Who is responsible?

That's easy, the OS, ergo MS...
That's the way shell extensions work, they are loaded into the explorer Process and therefore are "locked" until the owner process has finished with them.

Don't kill the messenger (Notepad++),
though your idea about shadow copy, copy file, load file, remap memory etc. etc... supported by official API's from the OS to replace shell extensions on the fly... every hackers wet dream if that came out of the box...
Who the f*** is General Failure, and why is he reading my harddisk?
