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).
