In my reading of this the main problem is that `tempfile` is trying to
import `random` from the Python standard library but instead is importing
the one from within NumPy (i.e., `numpy.random`).  I suspect that somehow
`sys.path` is being set incorrectly --- perhaps because of the `PYTHONPATH`
environment variable.
