mkstemp! does not generate a string.  It overwrites an existing string
in-place, and that's bad news for a literal string.

At any rate, you don't write, as the comment states, in a "tmp
directory" but rather in the current directory.  If you want a tmp
directory, you need to add it to the path.

And the .uuid file thing is a real problem with some versions of
fontconfig, so I lean to reverting the patch for now.
