Dear AOLserver community

There was a problem with "ns_tmpnam", when the aolserver was compiled under
windows (esp. Vista). The Tcl command"ns_tmpnam" is implemented in C
using tmpnam(), which exists under WIN32, but behaves differently
as on unix counterparts and is practically unusable. The problem is
that tmnam() under Windows generates a filename for the root directory of the actual drive (at least under Vista, no permissions under normal conditions) and
ignores the TMP environment variable.

See some background info form Microsoft:

I have commited a patch to CVS head to address this problem.
The patch is local and documents the intended behavior and background in detail.
Please crosscheck.

best regards
