One solution would be to use a function other than tmpfile, such

should do.

mingw doesn't have mkstemp either. I've been using mkstemps from libiberty.

Maybe mingw should provide a better version of tmpfile.  Unix
programmers expect it to do something sensible, not this
nonsense.  I suppose we could report a mingw bug.


Mingw is basically meant to be bug for bug compatible with windows. I
should probably try linking against mingwex library before you spend
to much more time on this... the mingwex library is meant to add some
C99 like functionality to mingw.
