That's weird.  I created a test.org file in /tmp/foo/bar/baz/test.org
and made a small ditaa diagram (foo.png) with two rectangles in it.

C-c C-e d creates

| address@hidden:/tmp/foo/bar/baz$ ls
| foo.png  test.org  test.pdf  test.tex
| address@hidden:/tmp/foo/bar/baz$ 

and nothing else.  I don't get .aux, .log etc in there.

For me all files are in the same directory as the .org

| default-directory is a variable defined in `C source code'.
| Its value is "/tmp/foo/bar/baz/"
| Local in buffer test.org; global value is nil

I'm afraid I'm out of ideas on this one.
