I forgot to say that, before I compiled it for Debian, I changed all
mktemp invocations to mkstemp; but this does not make a lot of difference;
the problem is that
1) the file should be created in /tmp : this is easily solved by
fixing the variable 'tempfile'
2) the file should possibly not be left there empty if it is empty:
this I do not know how(=where) to fix
