Bug#734507: wml: forgets to remove temporary /tmp/ipp.* directories

Package: wml
Version: 2.0.12ds1-3.1
Severity: important
Tags: patch


a temp directory (/tmp/ipp.*) is created to hold a few temp files, which
are then deleted, but the container never is. This results in some
inode-eating contest, at least on the host building the Debian website.
So remove this directory on successful exit (maybe error cases would be
nice to investigate, though…).

Patch attached; also, die, 3.0 (quilt), die, but that's another story.
