I am surprised that we should use /tmp directly.
If I remember well, there have been plenty of security advices against
programs using /tmp directly in the past, as they are vulnerable to symlinks
attack, as far as I have understood.
So personally I do not understand why KDE should again use /tmp directly (and
why Qt uses it).
