[O] bug#17416: insecure temp files in ob-screen.el

org-babel-screen-session-write-temp-file and org-babel-screen-test seem
to use predictable temp-file names, which is a security issue. Using
`make-temp-file', or if the file names really need to be predictable,
something equivalent to `doc-view-make-safe-dir' (there should really be
a general utility function for this IMO) to first create a /tmp
subdirectory would avoid this.
