Well, I guess I figured it out... it turns out that galaxy does some
internal magic to automatically add the path of the output directory
to the filename when it is rendering the html.  So what I needed to do
was to create the file in the temporary job directory and then just
use the file name without any path information in the html and galaxy
does the rest.  If anybody has any other advice or pitfalls to avoid,
please feel free to let me know.
