It's a known bug. Check out the relevant part from
Patrick Tullmann's patch :

and apply only the part that fixes the issue. Please
tell us if it works, as Patrick has report some
problems with the patch on the list, althoug I'm not
sure if they apply to that part.

If that fails, you could just set 
KAFFE_DEBUG_TEMPFILE to some unique file name, that
should work, too. :)
