Hi, thanks for fixing the temporary filename issue in 2.71! When trying to backport the fix to 2.52 (the version in Debian stable), Adam D. Barratt noted  tthat he behaviour has changed: The insecure version carp()ed and returned undef if opening the temporary file failed; tempfile() TTBMOK just croak()s. This might be an unpleasant change for callers that rely on a return value of undef if anything in the function fails. Not sure what's the best way of handling this, so I thought I'd bring it up with you guys :) Cheers, gregor -- .''`.
