Location of .tmp file when creating archive

    I'm using p7zip, the Linux port. Whenever I create an archive, the .tmp file is created at the source location, not the destination location. That means that there is serious difficulty creating archives of files on size-limited drives, plus there is a costly inter-drive move. Is this the fault of 7zip or some wrapper downstream?

    1) try to remove archive before creating new archive
    2) you can try -w{Dir} switch also.

    There isn't any previously existing archive, and I'm using the right-click context menu so there's no opportunity for switches.

    Thanks for your help. Seeing as this isn't expected behavior, I've filed a bug downstream: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10020
