merge index files and temporary directories

I have yesterday downloaded and installed swish-e 1.3.2 and I 
am very please with it so far.

There is just one problem I have run into, when trying to 
merge index file swish-e seems to create two temporary file 
in /var/tmp, because of the size and amount of my index files 
these temporary files get very big. Unfortunately our 
/var/tmp directory does not have a lot (at least not that 
much) space left, which resulted in the /var filesystem 
filling up. I had to manually stop swish-e merging and remove 
the temporary file to get things freed up again.

I cannot find anywhere where I can specify what directory to 
use for temporary files (I am using the filesystem method, 
rather than http).

Looking in the archives I found that someone had posted a 
much more detailed message on the same problem in 1997, has 
this been fixed since than, or can I still not specify the 
temporary file directory.
