Please make sure you update _all_ of Owl to the latest. You might
have copied the .rpm* files in ~build from an older native tree, --
you need to reset these to be symlinks to under the new native tree
instead ("rm .rpm* && make symlinks"). The problem will go away.

Yes, this is an instance of a fairly generic problem with the approach
we use for per-user temporary file directories. If a process switches
to a different user ID, its TMPDIR setting might no longer be correct.
The problem typically shows up when you start a daemon manually
(rather than let it get started on system bootup).
For daemons which are a part of Owl and for those which use Red Hat
style startup scripts (hint!), we've addressed this problem in the
daemon() function (in /etc/init.d/functions) by not exporting TMPDIR
into the daemon being started.
The per-user temporary file directories are thus only for users' (and
root-privileged administrators') sessions to the servers, not for
