I do not think we intend to create temporary files, whose final
destination is somewhere under $GIT_DIR/, in any working tree;
rather, I think we try to create them inside $GIT_DIR (or possibly
if the destination is a file in a subdirectory of $GIT_DIR, then in
the same subdirectory).  What you are seeing definitely smells like
a bug in the worktree code, perhaps getting confused by the fact
that the full path to these places look "unusual" by starting with a
single alphabet followed by a colon (IOW, this may manifest only in
Windows port).
