Subject: Improve diagnostics from LWP::UserAgent::mirror
Download (untitled) / with headers

A similar issue is described in #48236. I happened to come across the same problem and found a different spot where the diagnostics can be improved. Because the user had no write permissions to the directory the tmpfile was not even written and the stat() call was unsuccessful. I suspect this has a corollary in some unsuccessful close() further up the chain. The patch seems orthogonal to Slaven's patch in 48236, so I make this a new RT ticket.
