Thanks for your report! While we still don't use any truly atomic tempfile mechanism, I believe the issue of these files not being deleted under normal usage is now fixed in the latest release.

Forwarding the following bug report from the Maxima bug tracker, in which it is bug report # 1177085. Incidentally it seems like temporary file names want to be created by mkstemp or something like that. Just a guess.
-- Robert Dodier

-------------- begin quoted text --------------
Compiling a Maxima function using GCL produces a
file "gazonk*.lsp", where * = 0,1,...999. These are
just junk files, but they are never deleted. Once there
are 1000 gazonk files, you'll get something like

(%i1) quad_qag(sin(1/x),x,0.1,1.0,6,20000);
Maxima encountered a Lisp error:
1000 gazonk names used already!
Automatically continuing.
To reenable the Lisp debugger set debugger-hook to nil.

The only way to fix this is to manually delete the files.
