[Python-Dev] Tests failing on Windows with TESTFN

If the problem is AV scanners, then they should be opening them properly for this (and since the delete is not failing but is being deferred, I assume it's allowing deletes). If the problem is elsewhere in our code base then we have a different bug.

Renaming open files typically fails with a sharing violation (32).
Most programs open files with read and write sharing but not delete
sharing. This applies to Python, except temporary files (i.e.
os.O_TEMPORARY) do share delete access. Renaming a file is effectively
adding a new link and deleting the old link, so it requires opening
the file with delete access. Also, renaming a directory that has open
files in the tree fails with access denied (5).
