A simpler approach would be to simply ignore the error when it occurs in TemporaryDirectory._cleanup. There are no absolute guarantees about tempfile always cleaning up -- just a best effort. The complexity (and potential delays) of a retry loop seem more risky than simply occasionally not cleaning up -- that happens anyways, for a variety of reasons.
