I'm guessing your userid is in the same group as the userid
that owns the tmp directory. If so, there won't be an error.

Then can I suggest that the default swish-e configuration be
to use a local directory instead of $TMPDIR ?

I followed your link, and the problem was slightly misunderstood
during that discussion... however the solution was clear! Use
cp and rm instead of mv. I prefer using cat instead of cp for
things like this, so none of the original file attributes survive.
I wonder why they didn't fix a known problem with a known solution?
If there is some way we can rig autoconf inputs to use a local
temp dir or to use cp/rm instead of mv, we should. I don't have
the knowledge to do it myself.

The list subscribers are probably tired of hearing about this!
