My XP only has TMP set.  Are you sure you or your IT department isn't
running a special script to set your TEMP?

A quick google search shows that UNIX programs _do_ have a tendency to
honor one or more of $TMPDIR, $TMP, or $TEMP.  Is there a standard for
this?  _Should_ CVS be honoring whichever of them it finds first like
our documentation states?  If so, then would it be okay to honor all
three on Windows too just to avoid #ifdefs?
