Any decent DOS implementation of mktemp copes with this issue, e.g. by 
removing characters from the "txi" prefix until the template fits into 
8+3 limitations.  That's why the code doesn't need any #ifdef MSDOS 
there.  The "txi.XXXXXX" case is much more tricky to fix.

Sorry, I don't know why did I think it was a "char **".
