 The problem is once again windows, of course. We can't open reopen an
 already opened file there, meaning tempfile.NamedTemporaryFile is pretty
 useless on that platform. I still decided to go the closing the file
 before opening it route on windows (which totally defeat the points of
 using this for a secure temp file), because using a file descriptor won't
 work either on windows, since file descriptors cannot cross dll.

 What a f*-up platform.

 Anyway, fixed in r6205.
