The problem was reported already some months ago, see
<>. Unfortunately, I
haven't been able to find the cause of the problem. Let's try it again.

My last suspicion back in February was that there is a problem in
handling temporary files. Could you check it?

It's also remarkable that the problem has been reported only for
Win32. But I don't know yet what it means.

If you cannot find something wrt to your temp directory, we would need
more traces. I would like to see the Tramp trace buffer with trace level
8, see (info "(tramp)Traces and Profiles") about.

That doesn't count. Use make as described, it handles dependencies.
