Subject: flex license manager tempfile predictable name...

During the install of workshop pro 5.0 the flex license manager creates a
file in /var/tmp/license_errors, since /var/tmp is writable by anyone and
the tmp filename is predictable... you can see the problems here to
install licenses you need to be root. so, it could be nasty if this file
was a link...

-rw-r--r-- 1 root other 394 Feb 4 13:48 /var/tmp/license_errors

in the file, logs from the install:
