Oracle EBS fnd_file problem

Getting error that fnd_file unable to create a file.  

From manager log we see:


ERROR at line 1:

ORA-20100: Error: FND_FILE failure. Unable to create file, l0127129.tmp in the directory, f:\oracle\orapcomn\temp.

You will find more information in the request log.

ORA-06512: at "APPS_APPLMGR.FND_FILE", line 386

ORA-06512: at "APPS_APPLMGR.FND_FILE", line 526

It is NOT a permissions error. If I look in that directory, I DO SEE the file there as being empty. However, the date/time on the file is later than that of the request getting the error. Appears that something else is creating a file with the same name. I looked at a log from a run of this job on 2/19 and it is referencing the SAME tmp file as in the error message from a 2/11 log! Is this supposed to happen this way?

I did some googling and found a script which I altered to do: select cp.plsql_log, cr.request_id
from apps_applmgr.fnd_concurrent_requests cr, apps_applmgr.fnd_concurrent_processes cp where cp.plsql_log is not null
and cp.concurrent_process_id = cr.controlling_manager and cp.plsql_log = 'l0127129.tmp'
order by cr.request_id;

This script returned a lot of rows. I checked a couple of the requests and they matched to a workflow concurrent request job along with our failing job. Where does Oracle get the file name from? Really appears that another process is using the same name causing our problem.
