Hi Chuck, you wrote:

: or maybe someone will patch bash to use proper $TMP or $TEMP or $TMPDIR ? :)
: i might do that soon. BTW, bash-v2 has fewer such places.

Or bash/cygwin.dll could silently create /tmp itself.
Or use a temporary filename function (maybe win32 native) which knows about
the env vars and falls back to the same dir used by the OS or the current
dir if unset. And goes on if one dir is not writeable...
