Follow-up Comment #11, bug #33483 (project pspp):

The current (unmodified gnulib) behaviour is to use $TMPDIR, then "/tmp", then
abort with an error.

My patch, on Windows, changes it to use $TEMP, then "/Windows/Temp", then
abort with error.

So far as I can see, your patch uses $TEMPDIR, then $TEMP, then "/tmp", then
abort with error.

Surely a fallback of "/tmp" has the same problems (or worse) than
"/Windows/Temp" ?

Perhaps the correct solution would be to use the Windows syscall
GetTempPath, see
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa364992%28v=vs.85%29.aspx  I presume
this will be more robust, as it should know about all the Windows specific

Shall we have a go at that?
