Didn't think of non-plain text.. If you do use TextEdit again in the
Format menu select Make Plain Text. This is only an issue when you
create a new file - if you open an existing one it will retain the
format previously saved.

Not certain but I believe that is the vi temporary file. Maybe the rtf
codes messed it's cleanup. Or it had not exited cleanly. If your sure
your not editing the file then delete it.
