I've seen this recently too. I think its an internal bjam error.
There's a comment in the source that says:

        /* Write command to bat file. For some reason this open can fail
         * intermitently. But doing some retries works. Most likely this
is due
         * to a previously existing file of the same name that happens to be
         * opened by an active virus scanner. Pointed out and fixed by
         * Kozicki.

In Christ,
