        The behaviour of gnus is not emacs version dependent. Gnus
 depends on Emacs to do low level thuings like open files -- emacs20,
 probably, opens files in /tmp securely.

        So the fix lies in emacs20 code, not in Gnus.

 Decisions of the judges will be final unless shouted down by a really
 overwhelming majority of the crowd present.  Abusive and obscene
 language may not be used by contestants when addressing members of
 the judging panel, or, conversely, by members of the judging panel
 when addressing contestants (unless struck by a boomerang).  --
