Thanks, yeah, that is wrong.  Me (or someone else) will apply this fix,
and the others.  I don't think many people use local spool files combined
with dot locking, so this code path doesn't get much love.

I will have to think about that; just doing that for all callers of m_mktemp()
might be bad since it might cause the wrong code to be set for things like
rcvstore (I should check that).
