Follow-up Comment #1:

I think you have misunderstood how shell redicrection works.  The text after
the ">" is interpreted by the shell, not by find.  That means that "{}.tmp"
means whatever it means to the shell, and find has no say in expanding it.

That means this is not a bug in find (or, for that matter, in the shell).

While "-exec sh ..."  would change this behaviour, don't do that as it is
very insecure.
