On Linux creating a temporary file or directory usually consumes only one random name. But due to a bug on Windows (issue22107) it can consume up to TMP_MAX (2147483647 on Windows) names when called with read-only directory. Generating every name consumes about 16 random bytes. This can exhaust the system entropy and slowdown other applications.
