Bug#395432: openssh-client: ssh-agent ignores TMP env variable for placing its temporary files

Package: openssh-client
Version: 1:4.3p2-5
Severity: normal

When not using -a option on ssh-agent it places temporary files in /tmp
it totally ignores TMP env variable

        if (agentsocket == NULL) {
                /* Create private directory for agent socket */
                strlcpy(socket_dir, "/tmp/ssh-XXXXXXXXXX", sizeof
                if (mkdtemp(socket_dir) == NULL) {
                        perror("mkdtemp: private socket dir");

it should be looking at TMP or TMPDIR
