Sorry, the machine I was testing the package release on decided to crash
(or someone unplugged its network cable).  I'll have to go into the
office and reboot it.

BTW, your characterization of this bug is misleading.  By *default*, PGI
creates its own subdirectory of $TMPDIR to use, so there is no risk of
losing data that PGI doesn't create in the first place.
