fromfile and tofile work fine on regular files.  From skimming the code 
a bit, it's hard to imagine numpy code is the culprit, since it must be 
getting a NULL pointer back from PyFile_AsFile(file)...  Perhaps this is 
a question for a python dev list?  My gut says it's probably something 
in the windows tempfile module.  But perhaps in the PyFile_AsFile(file) 
implementation.  Seems one of those isn't playing nice.  It's all quite 
mysterious to me...
