Most likely this is a case of a virus scanner or file indexer having the file open when rmtree runs.  See issue 7443, which was about solving this for our test suite.  My last message there asks about exposing the workaround in shutil, but no one appears to have taken me up on that suggestion yet.

Can you disable all virus scanners and indexers and try again?
