I think that the problem must be something a little different.  PSPP
does create a temporary file when it writes a .sav, but it creates the
temporary file in the same directory as the final .sav.  Luis's error
message shows that this is likely what is happening, because you can see
that the final file name is /a/long/path/foo.sav and the temporary file
name is /a/long/path/foo.sav.tmpblahblah.

I still don't know the root of the problem, but I think it is likely
that chasing down the tempdir is the wrong direction.
