When investigating why my Windows 7 virtual machine disk space was running low, I noticed that %TMP% folder had 1202 copies of jffi*.tmp files. Each file was about 140kB so that's altogether close to 160MB.

It seems jruby had the same problem <> and it apparently is already fixed in jffi. Updating jffi to a version with the fix thus ought to fix this problem also on Jython.

Two more things:
- Issue #2270 covers similar problem with jansi*.dll files.
- On Linux I don't see any jffi* files (nor jansi* files) added to /tmp.

Bug is fixed in upstream, however updating JNR/JFFI jars cause many of the regrtests to fail.

Postponed until 2.7.1 at the earliest

We updated JNR/JFFI, but still seeing the temporary DLLs. Will revisit in 2.7.2  (or later).
