Thanks. This was useful.

It looks like the temporary-file-directory is set using the %TEMP%
variable if more than one of TEMP, TMPDIR and TMP are set.
Unfortunately, TEMP is already set to a Windows style path and I can't
remember what uses it (whether it is a Windows or cygwin program!), so I
don't really want to change it.

I will investigate some more. Thanks
