Is tempfile.mkdtemp() thread-safe?

I'm using tempfile.mkdtemp() in a multithreading program and I've been
having problems with it. Sometimes it tells me the file I'm trying to
access (in the directory created with tempfile.mkdtemp()) doesn't exist.
I suspect that tempfile.mkdtemp() returns the same directory to
different threads sometimes. Does anyone know anything about this or
have a solution? I have to create unique and temp. directories to use an
external program that creates a temp. file with the same name every
time, thus if I want to call it from several threads, each call has to
be from a different directory.
