Bug#456336: metamail: -h option fails

Package: metamail
Version: 2.7-53
Severity: important

This seems a separate issue than #237826, although it might be related
in some way.

When I try to run metamail -g on a test file, I get:

[bas@cordelia]/tmp> metamail -h test
sh: /tmp/MvjmV2p: Permission denied
Command failed:  /tmp/MvjmV2p

Strangely enough, the version I build locally for debugging works
