I did a similar patch for the build of bash used in cygwin, but it
gracefully falls back to /tmp if $TMPDIR is invalid, rather than choking.
At any rate, your patch is fine, so I applied it. I made one tweak to fix
emacs font-lock in that area, too. Thanks!
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
