Ah yes, a search for "dpkg-deb TMPDIR" turns up bug 247086 where someone
asked to include this in the documentation.  The reply: but it's so
obvious, no need to include it.  Version 1.10.22 claimed to fix it, but
only fixed one part of the bug, the TMPDIR issue remained.

I've been a DD for ten years and didn't think of it, so I can't agree
about the obviousness...  I think I'll open a new bug.
