You are absolutely right about it. Now that you point it out I see that it
is wrong.
Do you think that renaming "WORKDIR" to "EGPG_TMP_WORKDIR" would fix it?
Well, you can say that there may be other bugs too. Let's fix them as well.

I am not ashamed about this bug because I don't claim that I am an expert
everything. But I beleive that togather we can do a better job.
