Thanks.

Paul, I'm afraid that the assumption in create_temp_file, viz.:

      errno = EEXIST;
      mktemp (tempfile);
      /* INT_MAX denotes success, because close (INT_MAX) does nothing.  */
      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
      fd = *tempfile ? INT_MAX : -1;

and this code in emacs_close:

  int
  emacs_close (int fd)
  {
    while (1)
      {
        int r = posix_close (fd, POSIX_CLOSE_RESTART);
        if (r == 0)
          return r;
        if (!POSIX_CLOSE_RESTART || errno != EINTR)
          {
            eassert (errno != EBADF || fd < 0);
            return errno == EINPROGRESS ? 0 : r;
          }
      }

will not work on Windows, because closing a file descriptor of INT_MAX
will most certainly produce EBADF on Windows.

Why is this trickery needed for platforms that use mktemp?
