The python script lilypond-book.py can hang on Windows if the user's Windows user_id is longer than 8 characters and the user's default Windows temporary directory is in C:\Users<user_id>. This is because of an old, legacy DOS filename convention. A simple fix is to modify book_latex.py and change line #209 (closed) to
(handle, tmpfile) = tempfile.mkstemp('.tex', dir=".")which will create the temporary file used by the script in the current directory, rather than in the Windows default location.
