Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Session directories in $HOME?
From: George Bosilca (bosilca_at_[hidden])

TMPDIR and TMP are standard on Unix. If they are not defined ... one
cannot guess where the temporary files should be located.
Unfortunately, if we start using the /tmp directly we might make the
wrong guess.

What mktemp is returning on your system ?
