Ah yes. Neither alternative for a temp file is really satisfactory: we've
encountered portability problems (as I remember) with tmpnam(); on the other
hand, mkstemp() is always criticized, and the code that gets compiled assumes
that /tmp is both available and writeable....*seems* dangerous, but I can't
remember that anyone has ever complained about this, so I don't think I'll
change it now.

...thanks for fixing this....dave
