stray jnlp files gets downloaded onto the desktop when using Safari on MAC.

We are using jdk 1.4 webstart and safari browser on a mac machine.

Once the web start begins a jnlp file gets downloaded on to the desktop but does not get deleted. This happens each time the webstart begins thus the desktop is cluttered with stray .jnlp files each time web start is used.

Is there any workaround such that these files don't get downloaded at all or gets deleted once the web start closes?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
