IMHO this is correct. We are not using a temporary directory but a
using /tmp as directory known to be local. This is a requirement for
creating a socket. Consider the case the user would set TMPDIR to a
remotely mounted file system on a very fast server; depending on the
file system you would not be able to create a socket then.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
