Modules are accessed by their full name.

Temporary files are usually accessed by their full name, as they
are created in $TMPDIR. But xindy.pl was recently changed to set
$TMPDIR to '.' on Windows, and you tried that version -- so it
should actually use no full file names (or File::Temp constructs
them, this must be checked).

Sorry that I couldn't bring a quick answer to the table.
