[bug-recutils] Unable to use recfix with /tmp mounted as tmpfs

I have a recutils database and I'm trying to run recfix on it to encrypt
certain fields. However, the recifx command fails with:

recfix: error: renaming file /tmp/reciIKkkt to soc2018.rec

strace(1) shows that the rename operation fails because of:  -1 EXDEV (Invalid 
cross-device link)

Since my /tmp is not backed by disk, but lies entirely in tmpfs, I think this
may be the reason. Is there an easy fix available?

Thanking You,
Darshit Shah
