We work to make the various portions of our product use
/opt/zimbra/data/tmp for tempfiles.  However (as noted in the recent thread
about KVM issues), I've found that when jython is instantiated, it is not
using that path, but is instead using /tmp.

I've tried various ways (with no success) to change this behavior:

a) In our jython software
import tempdir

(Which changes it *after* instantiation, good, but not everything I'm
looking for)

b) While invoking jython:

exec `dirname $0`/zmjava -Djava.io.tmpdir=/opt/zimbra/data/tmp
org.python.util.jython "$@"

How can I get jython to use the correct tempdir at invocation, so I can
avoid the issue where people mount /tmp noexec?


Not sure if this is portable to non-*ix:
