RE: Problem with symbolic links on windows introduced on trunk somewhere between revision 22556 and 22778

I did some debugging and if I apply the following patch, the problem disappears. It seems that the code is trying to create a temporary file twice.

The patch file is generated on windows (so it contains cr/lf)

Regards,
Marc

Thanks for the report. It would help if you could produce a reproduction
recipe and/or narrow down the revision range a little more. That said,
there were some symlink-related changes in that range that may be relevant
(Erik: r22720 et seq).
