Fixed now. https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs/org-mode.git/commit/?id=69e3a4db3d0c54b4165761f56523da4962eff74c > 2.

For remotes, we fall back to org-babel-remote-temporary-directory. Apparently in all but one place in code. Now fixed. > It could also be nice to add an extra argument to force the use of the local > org-babel-temporary-stable-directory for remote files. I am not sure if it is a good idea. On remote files, default-directory often points to the remote making `shell-command' and similar run code on remote machine. It may not work well with local temporary directory. -- Ihor Radchenko // yantar92, Org mode contributor, Learn more about Org mode at <https://orgmode.org/>.
