Just to make sure, the crash you're talking about also exists for 2.2.x,

I don't see the advantage of doing this at a major version. Even if
there is an advantage, I don't think that so soon before the final
release is the right time for this non-trivial patch. From what I
understand, this temporary file name stuff is tricky. I know you've
tested the patch and it works for you, but I'm worried there could be
hidden problems.

I think waiting makes sense.
