Thanks for the proposal, but in this area bison is way too damaged to
keep on patching small chunks.  We need to completely redesign its
handling of temp files.

That's hot on my list.  Then we will make sure it works properly for

There are several steps to complete.  The first one is to equip bison
with mkstemp and its portability machinery.  Then we must find a means
to isolate the specificities of the various system bison was ported
to.  For instance we should have a function get_tmpdir or something.
Then use only unlink, and install portability machinery for
unlink-less architectures.

In the process, my bet is that your issue will be solved.
