We had a single report of this happening on Linux a great while ago, and couldn’t reproduce on any system. I’m not sure what to tell you; maybe our Windows developer will have an idea.

It'll happen if the executable crashes before it gets a chance to cleanup, or something else on your system locks out the files. Since temp folders are regularly cleared it's not typically a big issue.
