This may be better done by a new upstream release.

In fact, using mkstemp() instead of tmpnam() means quite substantial
change to the program logic, because the temp files are actually
created deep in different functions in different branches, using
the generated temp names from a single place. Changing that behavior
would mean internal API changes.

I will come up with a new upstream version soon, then.

Yes, I'll apply soon, but probably not before this upload.
I would like to have the regression fixed sooner.

BTW, do you think I should raise the urgency from low to medium,
although it does not fix any RC bug in Debian BTS? The regression
was reported upstream, not in Debian BTS, but it must have been a
grave bug had it been filed. It's a total loss of functionality.
