Ah, I see now. I should have looked at the source before opening
my mouth ;-):

    /* Win32 needs the following to remove temp files.
     * XXX: figure out why the APR_SHARELOCK flag works;
     * a grep through the httpd sources seems to indicate
     * it's only used in sdbm files??
#ifdef WIN32
    rc = apr_file_mktemp(fp, tmpl, flag, pool);

Randy, do you know why we use the APR_FILE_NOCLEANUP flag?  Maybe
we should just remove that and see if it fixes the problem Vinay
is seeing.
